Palmer Maphet graduated from Mt. Juliet High School in 2009, and attended Tennessee Tech University. He was an avid runner and was on the cross country and track teams at both MJHS and Tech. Palmer was also a passionate Christian and while on a mission trip in Maine the summer of 2010 he was a passenger in a car that was involved in an accident. Palmer died as a result of his injuries. In order to keep Palmer's memory alive we have created the Palmer Maphet Memorial Fund to provide educational scholarships to graduates of MJHS and also to provide grants to college students that choose to do mission work during their break. The inaugural Palmer Maphet Memorial 5K was on Saturday, April 9, 2011, and the proceeds were used to fund scholarships. Come join us for the annual Palmer Maphet Memorial 5K run.
