Since 1983 Palmer Scholars has helped over 250 young men and women of color from Pierce County attend college through scholarships and a family-style mentoring program. There are currently 72 scholars in the program attending colleges and universities throughout Washington and the U.S.
All proceeds from the Stand Up and Cheer fundraising luncheon will go toward scholarships, mentoring and the pre-college training offered to all newly selected scholars, making it possible for them to be successful in college. Having an education is truly something to Stand Up and Cheer about - for both the student and the community that will ultimately benefit from a well-educated work force.
I truly hope you are able to attend the Stand Up & Cheer Luncheon as the program promises to be entertaining and informative.
We hope that you will consider how you can help aid in the success of our local youth.
