M. Caroline Turner, JD’76

Outstanding Alumni Award - 1999

Ms. Caroline Turner was the female recipient of the Outstanding Alumni Award. After graduating from DU Law at the top of her class, she became a partner at Holme Roberts & Owen and then moved on to work for Coors Brewing Company, where she quickly rose in the ranks to the position of Senior Vice President at Coors. Turner was the first woman ever to hold such a position at that company. Her commitment to mentoring both women colleagues at Coors and DU law students illustrates the extraordinary contribution Caroline has made to the Denver community.
