Arthur Winzro Parks (1947 – 2010) was a father, brother, uncle, engineer, businessman, and educator. He attended Mico Teacher’s College in 1966. Thereafter, he taught at Pennwood Secondary School and Wolmer’s High School for Boys. During his tenure at Wolmer’s he attended the University of Technology and graduated in 1975 with a degree in Engineering. He grew up in St. Thomas and lived in Kingston before migrating to the United States.

While in the United States he engaged his entrepreneurial spirit and endeavored into many successful businesses. He was able to employ his siblings and nieces and nephews. He was my uncle and I worked at one of his businesses during the summer before I attended college. Being an educator and consummate student he recognized the financial burden of higher education. Initially he offered to pay for all of my books for college.

When I declined, he demanded and I acquiesced—knowing that his offer in many ways was grander than my young mind could comprehend. In the spirit of: an educated society being a prosperous society, I’d like to offer this Arthur Winzro Parks Fashion Scholarship in my uncle’s name.

The Arthur Winzro Parks Fashion Scholarship is only one of the many awards through the annual Arthur Winzro Parks Scholarship Program that is administered by our in-house scholarship coaches.
