The family of Warren Pyne, D.C., Davenport ’87, of Wareham,
Mass., is seen here with the first recipient of the Olivia Lynn Pyne
Memorial Scholarship, 8th Trimester Davenport Campus student
Amy Mathis. The scholarship was established to honor the memory
of the Pynes’ daughter Olivia, who died in a tragic accident at the
age of four. From left are Dylon, Dr. Warren, Gretchan and Andrew
Pyne, with Mathis in front.
The first-ever breakfast to honor the founding members of
Palmer’s Heritage Endowment Society was held at this year’s
Davenport Campus Homecoming. Palmer offers the most
student scholarships of any chiropractic college, with 32 states
providing state endowed scholarships as well as individuals
and families who have established scholarships.
Membership includes those who choose to support the mission
of Palmer College of Chiropractic through a gift of cash, stock
or securities to the permanent endowment fund, or provide
for Palmer College in an estate plan. Endowment funds are
invested for the long term, and those investments are used to
sustain the College’s academic excellence by supporting student
scholarships, outstanding faculty and innovative programs.
“We wanted to kick off our new program and recognize our
endowment leaders at Homecoming this year,” said Senior
Development Officer Lois Kundel. “Anyone who had given to
the endowment or made provisions for Palmer in their will
through June 30, 2007, was recognized as a founding member.
In the future, anyone who includes Palmer College in their will
or estate plan becomes a Heritage Endowment Society member,
and those giving $5,000 in cash or $25,000 in deferred funds
or more will have their names placed on the Heritage
Endowment Wall on Palmer’s Davenport Campus.”
