Lilie Anna Long: Being a Palmer's scholar meant being apart of a family. I was very grateful to have Peggy as my mentor, who continuously checked in on me before, throughout and even after my duration of college. She was a wonderful person who has helped me countless times and always gave me good advice on both school and life. Peggy was the one to always push me to continue to be the best I could be, regardless of all the obstacles I faced. Palmer's also helped me these last four years financially with school, which allowed me to stay focused and finish strong. I truly believe that if I did not have Palmers or Peggy by my side, I wouldn't have been able to graduate. Thank you Palmers family for making such a huge and positive impact on my life!UPCOMING EVENTS
