Nancy Mercado '13 is this year's recipient of the Palmer Society Alumnae
Endowed Scholarship. The Scholarship Panels this year were impressed by
Nancy's complete application and interview in which we learned a lot about her
service to the Palmer Society and how she embodies our Values and Ideals. We
are proud to call her our sister and know she has a bright future ahead of
Nancy received her award at the Annual Scholarship Tea held on Sunday, January
27. This year's scholarship was named special "The 2013 Barbara Ondrasik Groce
Scholarship Prize" to acknowledge Barbara's role in helping to establish an
award that all Alumnae can be proud of giving. It has been a dream of many
Palmer Alumnae to be able to support our Active sisters with a financial award

making this dream come true.

for their leadership in the Palmer Society.
The Palmer Society Alumnae Scholarship is a merit based
award given to a currently active Palmer Society member in good standing who
models the values of the Palmer Society as stated in our Mission and Values
Statement. This scholarship was established in 2009 and endowed in 2011. The
2013 award is the fourth scholarship that we have given. The Palmer Society
community has steadily raised over $60,000 to endow this fund and continue to
work to grow it with the objective of offering both more scholarships and
bigger awards so we may honor more of hardworking active sisters. It is our
goal to "Help a Palmer Girl Fulfill her Dreams".
