A young man who grew up in the small town of Floresville, Texas, Regan Turner had the values of community and selfless service instilled early in his life. He attended Texas A&M, where he was a President’s Endowed Scholar and a member of the Corps of Cadets, where he served as the Deputy Corps Commander his senior year before pursuing a commission into the U.S. Marine Corps.
As a Marine infantry officer, Regan commanded a rifle platoon in Afghanistan and a mobile assault platoon in Iraq before being selected to serve as an instructor at The Basic School (TBS) and subsequently The Infantry Officer Course (IOC) in Quantico, Virginia. During his three years in Quantico, Regan trained newly commissioned Marine Officers in the fundamentals of infantry tactics and Marine Corps leadership, serving as a Staff Platoon Commander at TBS and a Class Advisor at IOC.
Now, after seven years of active duty service, Regan is attending the Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Business School, where he has been selected to participate in the prestigious joint Master in Public Policy/Master in Business Administration program, where he has also been selected as a Dubin Fellow at the Kennedy School’s Center for Public Leadership. Following graduation from Harvard, Regan plans to continue his public service by working on improving education in America and in developing countries.
