During the Aug. 7 evening session at Palmer Homecoming on the Davenport Campus, Chairman of the Board Trevor Ireland, D.C., Davenport ’70, led a tribute to fellow Board Trustee Vickie Anne Palmer.

“We’re gathered here to recognize the continuation of the Palmer family legacy; through the efforts of Vickie Palmer during her 21-year tenure as chairman of the Palmer Board of Trustees,” said Dr. Ireland. He then introduced a six-minute video, which honored Ms. Palmer’s contributions to the College through testimonials provided by members of the Palmer Board of Trustees and the presidents of all three Palmer campuses.

“You’ve inspired us all to think ‘what if’ and challenged us to keep moving ahead,” said Dr. Ireland following the video. “In short, you’ve helped guide us on our way and given us true direction.”

Ms. Palmer was then given a framed display featuring a silver platter engraved with the Palmer crest and a resolution signed by the members of the Board, recognizing her for her service to the Board of Trustees and the College.

Dr. Ireland then announced, “It gives me the greatest honor to announce that this building, formerly called Lyceum Hall, will now be known as Vickie Anne Palmer Hall.” For this honor, Ms. Palmer received one of the many standing ovations made by the audience that evening.

“I’m truly humbled by your show of affection and appreciation with the video and with the kind words that have been expressed to me today, and especially the naming of this hall the Vickie Anne Palmer Hall,” she said. “I also want to say a very special thank you to the alumni who support Palmer College. You are the bricks and mortar of Palmer and our profession.”
