Haley Parker Has Been ‘Caught in the Act’ of Doing Good
If you attended college, in all likelihood, you spent the first couple years trying to "figure out what you were going to do in life." You gained your "freshman 10" pounds eating nothing but fast food and drinking beer. You probably were warned by your parents that this "free ride" was going to come to a screeching halt if you didn't start studying and ending the "party life."
Just guessing that Haley Parker has never gotten that talk from her Mom. Also betting that she doesn't have too much time for partying, because she's too busy helping those around her. She's done so much, she impressed her own Mom, Renee Parker, who sent us this letter nominating Haley for this week's Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award.
Haley is a junior in college at Centenary College for pre med. She volunteers with Special Olympics, Circle of Hope, Shriners just to name a few. She gives her time selflessly and is dedicated to healing those in need. While being a full time student she coaches Special Olympic Softball, is a unified player for Special Olympics volleyball and the Unified coordinator for our area. She spent her whole summer interning with Dr Bill Parker, ENT. She does all this and still makes time to spend with her sister Lacey who has Down Syndrome and her middle sister Kassidy who is in college at NSU. . I stand in awe of all she does and am so proud to be her mom. I know the world is a better place because of her. Her dream is to become a surgeon and help to makes children s lives better. She deserves to be caught in the act and so much more.
Haley Parker, thank you for being an inspiration to us all and a big reason why this is the greatest place in America to live!
And because you've been "Caught in the Act" the gang at Silver Star Smokehouse and Silver Star Grille have a $100 Gift Certificate for you to come have dinner on them!
Take a listen to the phone call we made to Haley to let her know that she was this week's Caught In The Act Award recipient.
