Larry D Parker Sr. was a beloved Navy Veteran, husband of over 40 years, father of four, grandfather of six, and a MR2 Machinist with a journeyman license.
Larry was a hardworking man, raising three boys and a girl. He taught at North County Technical School and worked for GKN, a Boeing supplier. He was a good and proud man. He didn't believe that four-year universities were the only way to go. This scholarship seeks to create an opportunity for students who aren’t a match for universities but still want to learn a trade and work. Larry D Parker Sr.’s Legacy Scholarship will honor the amazing legacy Larry left behind by continuing to give back the way he did.
This scholarship is specifically for high school or undergraduate students who are or will be attending a trade school or community college and are involved in their communities. Students are eligible to apply if they are from a low-income background and from an underrepresented minority community (not limited to race). To apply, write about how you will make an impact through your career, a person in your life who you consider a hero and what you would change about the world if you had the chance.
