On Thursday, October 6, 2022, Turner received this award from the Minnesota Community Education Association at their Fall Conference. Read what was shared about her at the conference:

"Jakarta Turner is an amazing Community Educator. She sees a need in the community and is willing to meet those needs through programming and services. Jakarta manages all aspects of Community Education in Brooklyn Center Community Schools. In the past year, she has developed an early learning program for 3 year olds, taken over facilities rental, and has provided space for community members to use the building.  Her ability to connect with the community, staff and students is second to none. In Jakarta's time as a community education manager, she helped build or rebuild all aspects of the community education department."
