The Mary Parker foundation has truly blessed me and my family in so many ways. Throughout my years of studying at GRU, I have been shown support not only financially but through emotional and spiritual support as well. I knew without doubt that if I had a challenge, question or just needed to talk that all I needed to do was make a call. Today, I am a proud product of a community of believers that are committed to raising a new generation where achieving dreams are not just a dream but a reality. I received my Cap and Gown tonight yes, the young lady that you equipped in 2012 with the first MPF Scholarship to ensure that I was not only ready for college but that I was equipped and capable to compete as a leader in my class will be a 2016 spring graduate of the Hull College of Business. I know that God favors me! I know that there’s a purpose! There were so many times where I just felt overwhelmed, discouraged, and in the dark but then I stopped and thought about my family and the people I call my mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers and it’s because of them that I kept pushing. Thank you Mary Parker for believing in me. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for raising other generations. I turn my tassel to the other side humbly and proud to continue pouring the blessing for those behind me for I am a Legacy!

"This foundation is an extension of the heart and passion of it’s name sake Mary H. Parker. As a result of mediocre beginnings, educational opportunities, professional highs and lows, and the ascent to the apex of business success, she has poured her life into this organization."
