Vickie Palmer donates funds for Rhino Premier Sled to rugby program

12/15/2011 (Archived)

In honor of her father’s love of rugby and the Palmer Rugby Football Club he founded in 1960, Palmer Board of Trustees Officer Vickie A. Palmer has donated funds to purchase a Rhino Premier Sled for the Palmer rugby teams to use in training. Ms. Palmer’s gift will be useful as both the men’s and women’s clubs prepare for the spring season. The men’s rugby team hopes to qualify for a third straight bid to the USA Rugby Final Four championship.

This donation comes on the heels of the launch of the Dr. David D. Palmer Athletic Trust, which serves as a fund-raising vehicle for the support of athletics at Palmer. If you are interested in contributing to this fund, go to www.alumnitrust.org to make a tax-deductible contribution.
