Announcing the Cleaveland Family Memorial Scholarship

Updated: Apr 16, 2021

Bob Cleaveland and Merle Palmer were two peas in a pod. Like Merle, Bob also worked in insurance and was dedicated to serving the youth in his community. At about the same time Merle and Rev. Al started Palmer Scholars, Bob and two friends co-founded the Washington State chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, granting wishes to youth with life-threatening illnesses.

Though this work kept him busy, Bob also served as a founding Board Member at Palmer Scholars and remained active with his wife, Deanna, until his passing in February 2018. To commemorate his life of service, Deanna has established the Cleaveland Family Memorial Scholarship, supporting Palmer Scholars for many years to come.
