Profile of 2018 King of the Kilts – Jim Turnbull

Jim Turnbull is a member of the Ronald McDonald House Charities board of directors, the Chief Information Officer for University of Utah Health, and was crowned as the 2018 King of Kilts!

In his profile, he stated, “Going back hundreds of years, both sides of my family are of Scottish origin and darn proud of it! Many a kilt has been worn by the clan and this event provides one more wonderful opportunity to do so. Combining this background with my 43 years working in the health care industry made “Good Men & Kilts” an obvious event in which to participate. Thank you so much for your support.”

He was successful with 485 votes to his name!
Nominate the next Kilts for Kids Champion today by emailing Stephanie Stevens.

  • Donate cars, trucks, SUV’s, motorcycles, boats – if it has a motor, it can help.
