Palmer Scholars Welcomes 26 New Scholars to Class of 2023 Cohort

We are excited to announce that we have recently chosen 26 Scholars from Pierce County high schools to join the Palmer Scholars Class of 2023 cohort! Scholars completed their application to Palmer Scholars in December 2021, and took part in virtual interviews throughout the month of February. Palmer Scholars' selection committee took multiple factors into consideration when accepting Scholars, including an applicant's commitment to serving their community and ability to persevere through hardship. While we wish we could have offered admittance to all 110 applicants, we are committed to providing the highest level of service to our Scholars.
