Parker and Sons started their “Parker- Character Counts” Scholarship to help deserving students. It is not based on grades or on accomplishments but is instead based solely on shining examples of students who share Parker’s core beliefs:

  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Fairness
  • Thoughtfulness
  • Work well with others
  • Charitable
  • Think of other first
  • Reliable
  • Strong Work Ethic

“Nothing is more important than supporting our local community and there is nothing better than helping a student, that shares our core beliefs, get an education. It’s the best way I know how to really help the community short and long term.”

Paul -Owner of Parker and Sons
