Attendees at this year’s Heritage Endowment Society Luncheon
included alumni, faculty, students and Board Trustees.
In 2007, the Heritage Endowment Society was formed to
honor those who have established a lasting legacy for Palmer
through their support of the College endowment. During
Palmer Homecoming on the Davenport Campus, approximately
110 people gathered on Aug. 7 to mark the society’s
first year, including alumni, Board of Trustees members,
administrators, spouses, friends, students and guests.
During the luncheon, Davenport Campus President Donald
Kern, D.C., welcomed 17 new members into the Heritage
Endowment Society, including alumni, friends and organizations.
There were five new Society Members, 11 new 1895
Society Members and one new Silver Society Member.
“The Heritage Endowment Society recognition luncheon provided
the opportunity for endowment donors and student
scholarship recipients to meet,” said Senior Development
Officer Lois Kundel, who coordinated the event. Attendees
were encouraged to continue to support the College endowment,
which in turn supports the students.
Other speakers included 10th Trimester student Jay Breitlow,
who thanked endowment donors for their support and
expressed his appreciation for the scholarships he and other
students have received that assist them with their education
at Palmer. He shared his dream of going to Madagascar to be
the first licensed chiropractor there.
Following the luncheon, the Development Office hosted a
CE seminar that included a panel of financial professionals
such as CPAs, trust officers, financial planners, attorneys and
others. They also discussed the financial, business, retirement
and estate planning issues alumni face at different stages of
life during practice.
