Our mom, Marilyn Palmer, was a believer in the possible. 

As a loving wife to a basketball coach and the mother of 4 boys, she was an eternal optimist with a keen sense of gratitude for the world. As her kids grew older, she became increasingly involved in tutoring and ended her working career as a census taker. 

She truly was an American Girl, thrifty and clever, who always found a way to make things work out for the best no matter the circumstance. 

To honor her great legacy and the life she lived, our family would like to offer the Marilyn J. Palmer Scholarship to one American student who, instead of pursuing the ordinary undergraduate route, is interested in taking their studies to a trade/vocational school to harness their skills in a specific field.

To apply, please write about what being an American means to you.
