In 2014 the Darcell Palmer Integrity on Behalf of Children Award was created in memory of Darcell Palmer. Darcell was on the Kidpower board of directors for ten years and provided valued insight and wisdom to the organization. As principal of Monroe Elementary School, Darcell ensured that all of her students and staff were trained by Kidpower because of her passionate commitment to children’s safety. She also enrolled her grandchildren in classes, bringing some in from distant cities. This award is presented to members of our community that have shown the same dedication and integrity for the protection of children as Darcell.
