The Turner Tornado center court honored six seniors recently. These Seniors will be the 2020-2021 graduating class at Turner HIgh School. Although there wasn't quite the crowd that would usually come to honor the Seniors, due to Covid restrictions, those who were present and those watching on the NFHS website, enjoyed honoring them just the same.
