Commencement ceremonies on Oct. 19 in Palmer College’s Lyceum Hall auditorium on the Davenport Campus, marked the graduation of 131 Doctor of Chiropractic and five Associate of Science in Chiropractic Technology degree recipients.

Jeffrey Mackey, D.C., a 1980 graduate of Palmer’s Davenport Campus, was the commencement speaker. He reminded the graduates that, “This is where chiropractic began and where it will continue to flourish from. I would ask you to give back to this institution. Send students to Palmer, become involved in the alumni association and come back for Homecoming.”

Awards were given to four valedictorians: Lacey Alexander, Peoria, Ill., Kristen Bentson and Scott Bentson, Staten Island, N.Y., who are husband and wife, and Brian Fitzpatrick, Nevada, Iowa. Brian Fitzpatrick received the Virgil V. Strang Philosophy Award as well as the John Connolly Memorial Award for scholarship and involvement in Palmer and community organizations. Kristen Bentson received the Clinical Excellence Award and the salutatorian was Jeffrey Hannah, Davenport. Faculty Clinician David Hannah, D.C., was the Awards Convocation speaker.
