This scholarship was established in memory of Rick Parks. Rick stood for excellence in all aspects of his personal and professional life. Rick's work as a fine artist lines the halls of leading hotels and businesses around the world including the Plaza and Trump Tower hotels in New York and the Treasure Island and Mirage hotels in Las Vegas to name only a few. Despite his unmatched talent, Rick's greatest contribution was his undying love for his craft and the joy he radiated in living every day of his life. Each and every person he touched felt his good nature. It is with this thought in mind that the Rick Parks Scholarship Endowment Fund has been established. This Fund will serve to carry on Rick's infectious goodwill as it helps others realize their dreams of creativity. Rick may be gone, but we all continue to learn from his wisdom and loving life.
