Karen Palmer Student Travel Fund

Karen Palmer Memorial Travel Fund

Karen Palmer, Individuals & Societies teacher at Corning-Painted Post High School, passed away in October.


"Her love for adventure has been passed down not only to her daughters, but to many of her students as well. If she wasn't out on an adventure, she was probably at home relaxing with a good book and snuggled up with her pets that always held a special place in her heart. Anyone who knew Karen, knows how much she loved life. She faced everything with joy, positivity, humor and a sense of adventure. That is how she will always be remembered".



In honor of Karen's passion for travel and adventure, the Karen Palmer Memorial Travel Fund was established to provide assistance to students who are participating in one of the travel opportunities (foreign or domestic) available to students at Corning-Painted Post High School.
