#TurrillTough means...

Big picture
...at Turrill we're not just building things. We want to work with our parents to build better people!! A Community of Success!

We think that each one of us is strong individually but we are even stronger when we work together.

Wow!! The Girl Scouts raised enough money for 11 water filtration systems to send with Mr. and Mrs. Smith to Haiti.

Helping others is...

being Turrill Tough!!
