The Alan Palmer Scholarship was established in 2004 by friends and family to honor the memory of Alan Palmer '86OX'88C. Alan was on the soccer team at both Oxford and Emory Colleges, as well as on the golf team at Emory. He was very active socially. He was Dooley's Spokesman while at Oxford and a member of Kappa Alpha fraternity while at Emory. Family and friends have sponsored several golf tournaments to add money to the scholarship. The first recipient of the scholarship was announced in 2005. Each spring, an Alan Palmer Scholarship awards $5000 to an Oxford College rising sophomore.
With the help of many, we know this wish of honoring and memorializing a dear friend and loyal alumnus of Oxford College, while helping future generations of Oxford students, can be realized. Thank you for your support.
