9/12/2012 (Archived)

On Aug. 25, during the Florida Chiropractic Association’s (FCA) annual convention in Orlando, Palmer hosted a campaign luncheon, an evening reception, as well as a Palmer booth in the exhibit hall. Representatives from the College spoke to hundreds of attendees, including alumni, students and prospective students. 

The Development Office hosted the Florida Campus Student-Centered Campaign luncheon with emcee and guest speaker Michael Chance, D.C. (Davenport ’78). Other speakers included Chancellor Dennis Marchiori, D.C., Florida Campus President Peter Martin, D.C., and Megan Pfeffer, a 9th quarter student and president of the Florida Campus Student Council. More than $19,500 was raised in gifts and pledges from the luncheon in support of the Standard Process Student Center building on the Florida Campus.

More than 200 people came to the alumni reception that evening. Presentations were given by Dr. Marchiori, Executive Director for Alumni Mickey Burt, D.C., and Vice Chancellor for Advancement Robert Lee.

“At the Standard Process-hosted reception at the FCA, it was announced that the chiropractic College with the most attendees would win a scholarship. Palmer won!” said Assistant Director for Alumni Lisa Walden. “For having the most representation at the reception, we received a $2,500 scholarship from Standard Process for our Florida Campus students. Palmer is proud to remain the leader!”

The Florida Chiropractic Association Foundation also presented Palmer with a check for $12,500, which will go toward five $2,500 gift scholarships for students at Palmer’s Florida Campus.

Palmer also recently hosted alumni receptions during conventions for the Florida Chiropractic Society in Palm Beach and the Colorado Chiropractic Association in Denver.
