Thank you to our 2017 Stand Up & Cheer Sponsors

We would like to thank all of our attendees, donors and sponsors for a very successful Stand Up and Cheer fundraising event April 25th! Thanks to your generous donations we raised towards our scholarship, college readiness training, mentoring, career preparation and community service programs. All funds raised go to directly serving our Scholars.

We are also thrilled that so many attendees expressed interest supporting Palmer Scholars through mentoring, offering internships or job shadowing opportunities, serving on committees, providing a meal for trainings, or being a sponsor or table host at next year's event!

Stand Up and Cheer is vital to supporting the mission of Palmer Scholars. Having an education is truly something to Stand Up and Cheer about - for both the student and the community that will ultimately benefit from a well-educated work force. We are so grateful for the generous support of our community. Thank you again for helping us Create Hope and Opportunity through Education!
