Ann and Jack Parkey

Body
Ann and J.R. “Jack” Parkey’s involvement in the ACJLS began in the early 1980s when their son Robert (James Robert, IV) was a freshman at Holliday High School. Jack had recently returned to the county to run his family’s ranch in Dundee with Ann and their three children. Under the leadership of Jim Bob Wallace, ag teacher and FFA sponsor at Holliday, Robert set out to do a beef project. That was the beginning of over a decade of the Parkey’s service to the ACJLS.
