Congratulations to Trina Palmer!!!
From the press release:
On Tuesday, April 24th during the General Education Awards Ceremony, Dr. Katrina “Trina” Palmer was awarded this year’s Transfer Champion Award. The Transfer Champion Award was created in 2017 to recognize a faculty, staff, or administrator who has demonstrated exceptional advocacy and leadership in the development and implementation of transfer-focused activities that have made a significant contribution to the improvement of transfer student access, persistence, and success. Transfer students represent approximately one-third of all new students as well as graduates of Appalachian. The support by faculty and staff during their transition and tenure at Appalachian is critical as they navigate a new institution, integrate into a new community of friends and support systems, and achieve academic and leadership success.
Dr. Palmer has been a staunch transfer advocate at Appalachian State University and served on the Transfer Taskforce in 2013, is a Faculty Transfer Mentor, serves on the Transfer Services Team, and is the Mathematical Sciences Transfer Director. As the Transfer Director in her academic department she organizes a STEM Transfer Day for Community College students as well as welcoming events for new transfer students majoring in mathematics.
