Brenda Kay (Sturgill) Turner honored by Pete Jarvis Organization Inc™ at Morrison Park

Pete Jarvis Organization Inc™ was founded February 26, 2007, by Carol and Steve Wagner in memory of Carol’s brother, Paul Ray “Pete” Jarvis. Pete founded Pete Jarvis' Cornstock™, an all day music festival originally located in Morrison Park in Shelbyville.
Brenda Kay (Sturgill) Turner served as a volunteer for many years at Pete Jarvis' Cornstock™. She and her husband David worked tirelessly to make the event a success. In 2019, Brenda joined the Executive Board, becoming the Director of Merchandising of Pete Jarvis' Cornstock™. Brenda passed away suddenly Sunday, August 7, 2022, at her home.
The Executive Board of Pete Jarvis Organization Inc™, the fiscal sponsor of Pete Jarvis' Cornstock™, wanted to honor Brenda for her years of hard work and dedication to helping the residents of Shelby County through her volunteer work at Cornstock.



The Board collected plastic bottle caps and obtained an eight-foot rainbow-colored park bench. On June 2 the bench was placed in Morrison Park, the home of the original Pete Jarvis' Cornstock™.
