The NSMA extends its condolences to the family of Joan Palmer, a longtime NSMA supporter, who passed away last month after a battle with cancer.
Joan grew up with what was then the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association, since her parents -- Hank and Petie -- were two of the organization's Salisbury, NC founders. She took over her father's business, Palmer's Promotions, and provided the NSSA with many promotional items that were sent to members, or given to NSSA award winners.
