These individuals each share a drive to not only to fulfill their potential, but a commitment to share their talents with their communities and the world,” said Jan Misuraca, executive director of the Parkway Alumni Association. “They are truly inspiring individuals who are making a difference.”

 “The solid foundation these individuals received in Parkway was certainly instrumental to their success, although the rewards they have earned have been the result of hard work and dedication,” said Don Senti, Parkway’s interim superintendent. Many of the graduates attribute their ability to succeed in school or their career choice to a special teacher or administrator who motivated them to do more.

The inductees will be honored at a celebration and dinner at the Sheraton Westport Lakeside Chalet on Sat., Nov. 13, 2010, at 6 p.m. Tickets are available for $60, payable by check or charge. Call the PAA at 314-415-8074 for reservations by Nov. 1.
