Paving the Way

As co-chair of the Turner Hall Transformation Project, Jerry Brookhart is honoring his past and paving the way for the future. Jerry, a 1963 agricultural sciences alum, has experienced a successful career in the technology industry, allowing he and his wife Mary Creasey-Brookhart to make a major gift to the Turner Hall Transformation Project. 

“I would not be where I am today without the start I got right here at the University of Illinois. I’m pleased to be able to renovate one of the Turner classrooms into a high tech classroom to facilitate collaboration between students and faculty across the globe.”
