Larry H. Parker Scholar Incentive Awards
The support and development of youth in California will help ensure a bright and positive future for our community. Consistent with this belief, The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker has established the Larry H. Parker Scholar Incentive Awards. Every year, around 30 scholarships will be presented to high school students in California and Arizona who exhibit a commitment to improving their community through service and education. Award recipients have distinguished themselves through academic excellence, while exhibiting the motivation and desire to succeed despite extenuating circumstances.
Thank you for allowing me to receive the Larry H. Parker scholarship and for having me as a spokesperson about my college experience to the future college students who are on their journey to success.

Many recipients of the Larry H. Parker Scholar Incentive Awards are disadvantaged students from single parent households. Some students, in addition to maintaining academic excellence, help support their family through employment at a part-time job or assisting in the care of their younger siblings. Some students are already giving back to their community through volunteer services.
Regardless of the situation, all students display the motivation and desire to succeed. Five scholarships are presented to high school seniors who are involved at Community Build, a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering inner-city youth and fostering economic development. The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker would like to congratulate the recipients of the 2014 Larry H. Parker Scholar Incentive Award.
