West Campus Silver Anniversary

The 25th anniversary of Palmer College of Chiropractic’s West campus was celebrated Oct. 7 and 8 during the campus’ 2005 Homecoming festivities.

“We had a collection of terrific speakers and vendors, and it was great to see Palmer West alumni—some of whom traveled from as far away as Colombia and Alaska—on campus,” said Gary de Wet, D.C., Palmer West Homecoming Committee chair. “The weekend represented many years of our history, and we were excited to have so many join in the celebration of our 25th anniversary.” Also on hand were Campus Guides and a number of administrators, faculty and staff from Palmer’s Davenport and Florida campuses.

Palmer West graduates spanning the life of the College attended various activities throughout the weekend including the Palmer College Alumni Student Recruitment Program (ASRP) event.

A highlight of the Homecoming banquet included the presentation of a fellowship to Palmer West President Peter Martin, D.C., who became the newest Fellow of the Palmer West Academy of Chiropractic.

Marilyn Smith, D.C., received a special award in recognition of her 16 years of service as a member of the Palmer West and Palmer Chiropractic University System Board of Trustees, which included four years as chair of the Palmer West Board.

Homecoming entertainment events included a barbecue/talent show/casino night on Friday and music by Silicon Vibe the next night in the Santa Clara Westin Hotel’s grand ballroom.
