“We’re put on this earth to make it better than when we came.” – Harlan Palm

After a lifetime of creating jobs in Central Minnesota, Harlan and Jeraldean “Jerri” Palm wanted to ensure they continued to help others for generations to come. Before Harlan’s passing in 2021, the couple decided to set up a scholarship fund at their local Paynesville Area Community Foundation. The Harlan and Jeraldean Palm Scholarship fund focuses on the career fields they’ve already supported through their various manufacturing businesses, including vocational and technical degrees.
