Congratulations to one of our Board Members

Kelsi Waltemire Palmer, a digital and social media strategist at High Rock Studios, received the Rising Star Award, which honors a person aged 25 to 40 who “demonstrates a commitment to the Washington County community through volunteer service and financial support.”

Palmer serves on North Hagerstown High School’s Professional Advisory Council and is an assistant varsity softball coach for Washington County Public Schools.

A graduate of Shepherd University, she is on the boards of the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts Foundation and BraveHEART Program. She leads committees at the Hagerstown-Washington County Chamber of Commerce and volunteers for numerous local events, ranging from Washington County Gives to HEAL’s annual Color Splash.

“I was rather humbled,” she said of receiving the award. “I’m just very passionate about the organizations that I do get the opportunity to work with, and I love spending time with people and I love to be able to give back to the community that I was born and raised in.”

The foundation will contribute to the Young Philanthropist’s Fund in her honor.
