Tony LaTurner

B.S. History, 1968
Business Consultant (Founder, Six Sigma)
Spanish Fork, Utah

A thirst for knowledge is one of the components that contributes to Tony LaTurner’s success as a consultant. As a youth, he was always reading a book about his most current interest; when he enrolled in Church College of Hawaii, his love of learning led him to study topics ranging from history to sociology to business.

As a non-Latter-day Saint at CCH, LaTurner found himself greatly impressed with the standards of the members. Thus, in his continual quest for knowledge, he picked up a Book of Mormon, read it, marched up to the mission president’s office, and told him he wanted to get baptized. Without receiving the discussions, LaTurner was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and, a year later, was called to serve a mission in the British England mission.

After graduating from CCH, LaTurner began consulting for Hewlett Packard, as well as moonlighting at other companies. Once he established a clientele base, he started consulting professionally, and for the last thirty years, has traveled the world giving seminars on Six Sigma, Theory of Constraints, and Lean Certification.

LaTurner is currently working with Church headquarters to help them save millions of dollars; he feels that this service to the Church is the culmination of all the work he has done thus far in his life.

Coming to this school should be looked upon as a privilege. I went to this school, and I am here to give back. I would like to see students go home and make a contribution to their home countries.
