The Hornet Family and campus IT community remembers the life and legacy of Teresa Palmer through the Teresa Palmer Legacy of Service Scholarship.
From student to technology leader, Teresa Palmer's life work centered around advancing technology's transformative role in education, mentoring the next generation of technology innovators, and providing exceptional service to every Hornet. For over 18 years, her contributions continually raised the standard of what IT could – and should – be.
Her experiential and innovative solutions, and ability to identify efficiencies strengthened the teams she served on. To each project, meeting, and conversation, Teresa brought intelligence, institutional and industry knowledge, and calm.
Teresa’s legacy shines in so many facets of the Sac State technology experience. For 18 years, she brought her passion and insights for technology’s transformative role in education to her life’s work at the university. Teresa, twice Made at Sac State, likely worked with nearly every Hornet, and she will be best known for her dedicated and approachable leadership focused on ensuring the success of faculty, staff – and closest to her heart – students.
After a truly courageous two-year cancer journey, our good friend and irreplaceable pillar in the Sac State IT community passed away on August 7, 2023.
This memorial scholarship will support a student working in the division of Information Resources & Technology who models Teresa's legacy of exceptional, innovative, and compassionate technology service and support.
