Winner of the 2021 Energize Your Education College Scholarship

The winner of the 2021 Energize Your Education College Scholarship is Mr. Parker Ryan of Porter, Texas.

Parker is a 4.0 student at Kingwood Park High School and recently served as lead architect on a tiny home build project for Students Helping Veterans. This program teaches students trade skills while donating back a tiny home to a local community living center for homeless veterans.

Parker’s interest in architecture and construction began when he took a Career and Technical Education class at his school. That led to him joining the Students Helping Veterans program three years ago. After serving as a building captain, Parker was selected as lead architect his senior year, based on designs he created during the 2020 coronavirus school shutdown.

Parker’s winning essay described the impact of this program on him and on the community:

Being able to see my work bring life and honor to these veterans has meant the world to me these last three years of high school and also means so much to my community. Just prior to writing this, I had the opportunity to speak at our Tiny Home ceremony in front of hundreds of school administrators, building sponsors, veterans, and my friends, all of whom expressed great gratitude for our work and expressed hope for what my generation can accomplish in the future.

Although this program was just an idea three years ago, we have reached so many people’s hearts and have begun to positively influence the lives of both the veterans receiving the homes and those who surround them.

Parker will attend Texas A&M University at College Station where he is majoring in architectural engineering. Whoop!
