Kerlin was the first woman to serve as Taylor’s Board chairperson and is the namesake of Taylor University’s G. Roselyn Kerlin Award—an honor that recognizes Taylor alumnae who have provided godly leadership in their personal and professional lives and who have exhibited an extraordinary commitment to Jesus Christ and to others.
