A Legacy of Leaping Barriers - Forté Senior Lifestyle Experts

Betty Turner, 83, a resident at Mirador senior living community, has called Corpus Christi home since 1954. She has a long list of accomplishments, but her most cherished achievement was being elected the first female mayor of Corpus Christi, serving from 1987-2001. Previously, she had been the first female mayor pro tem, serving two terms from 1981-1985. Her political career saw many challenges, changes and victories, from politics to education to preserving the arts, but one thing is for sure-she helped open doors for women across the country.

Mrs. Turner was lucky to have a privileged upbringing and a family dedicated to education. Her paternal grandfather founded Barnes & Noble, now the largest retail bookseller in the United States and the leading retailer of content, digital media and educational products. She earned her BA at Vassar College and came to Texas to earn her Masters at Texas A&I University (now Texas A&M).

Her rise to mayor took both hard work and dedication. Soon, she was named to the boards of multiple banks and hospitals and she was elected the first female CEO and President of the Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce.
In 2003, Turner was elected to the prestigious 21-member national AARP board with oversight of its 35 million members. She has since gone on to serve as president and member of dozens of boards of nonprofit organizations, both locally and nationally, and has been recognized with many awards for her service to the city of Corpus Christi. In another true testament to her passion for serving, she was the first Anglo board member elected to the Corpus Christi Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. She is also a lifetime member of the NAACP.
Women like Betty Turner helped pave the way for future women in politics, and their legacy is worthy of celebrating.
