A crowd of nearly 150 gathered in the Cafeteria to share stories and words of gratitude for these employees who have given so many years of dedicated service to Palmer.

“On behalf of Palmer College I’d like to recognize and thank those folks who are retiring this year,” said Chancellor Dennis Marchiori, D.C., Ph.D. “We have an outstanding group of individuals here today and they have made an incredible contribution to the College during their years of service.”

Speaking directly to the retiring employees, Dr. Marchiori added: “You should all know that you made a tremendous difference at Palmer. Please promise that you won’t be strangers. You’re welcome here at any time.”
