We wanted to take a moment and provide some special recognition for three students who received our Scholastic Awards at the 2014 Jubilee. For the first time, we presented Scholastic Awards during the Art of Preservation Jubilee, Sunday, November 23rd to three “Rising Stars” students: Brandon Collazo, Jacqueline Houston and Parker Story for their excellent achievements in art and preservation. Scholarships made possible by sponsors R. Jon Schick, Architect and UBS.
Parker Story is a junior at Gates Chili High School where he is an Honor Roll student. He is involved in the schools’ Band, Jazz Band and Percussion Ensemble and has played in the Pit Band for the school musical. He began studying piano at age 5 and has always been passionate about performing. He has received many awards for piano and saxophone. Parker loves God and enjoys sharing his gift with others by playing on the Worship Team at the Father’s House Church and with his band, Daily Milestone. Parker is just beginning his college visits, but has plans to pursue a major in music performance.
