SAVANNAH, Ga. – Parker’s recently partnered with WSAV-TV to award a $500 academic scholarship to Madeline Prince, a senior at Hilton Head Island High School on Hilton Head Island, S.C., who plans to attend the U.S. Naval Academy this fall.
Parker’s President and CEO Greg Parker presented Prince with a ceremonial check at a special event at Hilton Head High School on January 26. She will automatically be entered for the chance to win an additional $1,000 academic scholarship, along with other monthly Outstanding Student Scholarship winners.
Parker’s and WSAV are partnering to honor outstanding students for excellence in the classroom, in the community and in sports. Every month during the school year, Parker’s will donate a $500 college scholarship to an exceptional student in Georgia or the South Carolina Lowcountry. A panel of judges carefully reviews every nomination and identifies a winner.
“Education is one of the cornerstones of our charitable giving strategy at [the company],” Parker said. “We understand the power education has to transform lives. Giving back is part of [Parker’s] DNA.”
Prince, an accomplished student-athlete who earned a perfect ACT score, will attend the U.S. Naval Academy in the fall. Her goal is to become the first commander of a nuclear-powered submarine.
