The American College has awarded its highest honor to financial advisor Jack B. Turner of Jack B. Turner & Associates in Clarksville, Tenn.
   The Huebner Gold Medal-named after college founder Solomon S. Huebner-has been awarded annually since 1975 to honor individuals who support the college and "whose dedication to education and professionalism have been of particular meaning to the mission and progress of the institution," according to the college.
   Turner is an alumnus of the college and a member and past chairman of the President's Circle. A donor to the college the past 14 years, Turner has served as a trustee of The American College and Life Underwriting Training Council (LUTC). He has also served on The American College Foundation Board.
Turner was also a charter inductee of the Robert E. Musto Tennessee Insurance Hall of Fame and received the John Newton Russell Award from the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA).
   He earned his CLU in 1963 from The American College and, at age 27, served as the youngest president of the Tennessee Association of Life Underwriters.
   "Jack's reputation for generosity and service to the community is without equal," said Larry Barton, president and CEO of The American College. "His 'can do' attitude and willingness to help people is part of everything he does."
