FORT LORAMIE — The Fort Loramie Athletic Boosters established the “All-American Wall of Fame” in 2000. Its purpose is to honor Fort Loramie graduates who have earned All-American status as a result of their participation in collegiate athletics. This past weekend at halftime of the boys basketball game versus Anna, the school honored their 18th inductee, Brooke Turner, into the Wall of Fame.

Turner is a 2011 Fort Loramie graduate who as a student earned numerous academic and athletic honors. After graduation she moved on to Edison Community College where she continued her great success both in athletics and academics. As a member of the Edison Chargers Volleyball Team, Turner earned Academic All-American Status in being recognized by the National Junior Collegiate Athletic Association with the Superior Academic Achievement Award. In order to receive this award and earn All-American honors, she had to maintain a GPA of at least 3.8 or higher. As a freshman, Turner was also named team MVP.

Due to her successes in the classroom and in volleyball, Turner moved on to Urbana University and joined the Blue Knights, a Division II college in Urbana, Ohio. While playing volleyball at Urbana University, she became a record holder sporting the 6th best Hitting percentage for a career.

Turner graduated from Urbana University Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Early Childhood Education. She is currently a 3rd grade teacher at Concord Elementary School in Troy, Ohio, and recently became engaged to Jacob Seger from Anna. Turner and Seger plan to reside in Fort Loramie, the home of her beloved Fort Loramie Redskins.

The Fort Loramie Board of Education, school and community, wants to congratulate Brooke on her tremendous achievements and welcome her as the 18th member of the Fort Loramie All-American Wall of Fame.
