Posted by Tiger Pride in Academics, Faculty/Staff, Honors, Just for Fun

On Friday, September 21st, Hallsville ISD held its annual All-School Class reunion and as the name implies, this reunion is open to all classes, however special recognition was given to the classes of 1972, 1982, 1992, and 2002. Among the graduates of Hallsville High School is ETBU’s own Assistant Provost and Assistant Professor of Education, Dr. Marila Palmer (HHS ’71).

At the reunion, Dr. Palmer was recognized as one of two “Distinguished Alumni.” Carol Greer, Director of Public Relations for Hallsville ISD, remarked, “Our two Distinguished Alumni are great choices. They have set their goals and accomplished them and so much more.”

After graduating, Dr. Palmer graduated cum laude from Stephen F. Austin State University with an English degree and a teaching certificate. She earned her doctorate in Leadership studies from Dallas Baptist University.

The other recipient was Mr. Charlie Jones, and accountant, and the husband of Bonnie Jones, Director of Student Success at ETBU!

We are so very proud to have Dr. Palmer at ETBU! Way to go! GO BLUE!
