While many critics of Kirk believe he is unqualified to lead a student movement without a college degree or college experience, he has been more of a voice for conservative students than anyone before.
The founder has, however, provided outspoken, worried conservative students with a platform to express their views.
Turning Point USA has become the largest grassroots student movement across America, present on over 1400 college and high school campuses.
Without Kirk’s initiative, intellect, and outstanding character, such an organization would never have sprouted.
Turning Point USA is over-joyed by Liberty University’s honorable acknowledgement of Kirk’s life-long work!
