Parks Orthodontics is pleased to announce the winners of the William R. Parks Memorial Scholarship for 2018! These scholarship recipients represent the the spirit of Parks Orthodontics founder Bill Parks: a desire to serve fueled by a drive to succeed.
The winners of the 2018 William R. Parks Memorial Scholarships are:
Williamsburg Office: Lemai Vo, who is currently attending William and Mary
Yorktown Office: Alexis Fabila, who is soon graduating Menchville High School
The William R. Parks Memorial Scholarship was established so that current and former patients of Parks Orthodontics could compete for a chance for the award. Dr. Parks, the founder of Parks Orthodontics, believed greatly in the life changing power of education. He was an avid supporter of the Hampton Roads educational community and unselfishly gave his time and resources to several schools in the area.
Funding of the William R. Parks Memorial Scholarship was provided by Parks Orthodontics and the Parks family. In order to apply and compete for the scholarship, candidates must be a current or former patient of Parks Orthodontics and must be either a current high school senior or be enrolled in college. Applicants are asked to identify an experience and explain how it affected their life and to explain why they want to earn a college education. After careful consideration and much competition, our two winners were chosen as recipients.
Parks Orthodontics would like to thank all of our applicants and hope that they continue to strive for excellence in the future. Congratulations to our 2018 winners!
