Parker is a truly outstanding gentleman. He is a pre-med student currently at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. He will be soon applying for medical school, with the goal of again, to attend Johns Hopkins. Parker’s drive and selflessness show through on a day to day basis, and make him the most perfect gentleman to become a future surgeon. His passion for not only helping others, but healthcare in general, will, and have set him apart from his peers. Parker is a brother, and president of the Kappa Upsilon chapter of Sigma Chi at Johns Hopkins. His love for his fraternity, as well as their national philanthropy, The Huntsman Cancer Institute aid him in being a great leader for their chapter. In addition to his work with Sigma Chi, Parker has been recognized in a published medical article, as well participated in many research opportunities at Johns Hopkins and The Ohio State University. Parker also has helped run the Johns Hopkins Relay for Life for the past three consecutive years. Through all of his wonderful endeavors, I hope that he is considered for this wonderful recognition.
