Dean Parsons Scholarship

The Dean Parsons Scholarship  honors the selfless leadership and commitment of Dean Parsons.  Dean was the Vice President of the SCC Environmental Club in 1994.  Dean set an example for other club members at that time.  He was instrumental in establishing the first recycling program at Scott Community College....the first recycling program in the Eastern Iowa Community College District.  He also formed the first "Trail Committee" and started work on trail maintenance and establishment of the first tallgrass prairie restoration project on campus.  We remember Dean's love of the outdoors and his kind heart.  Dean passed away after a long battle with lung cancer in 1998.

The Parson's family and the SCC Environmental Club established a memorial scholarship fund in remembrance of Dean in 1998.  A bench dedicated to Dean was placed near the nature area and several trees were planted surrounding the site.  The scholarship is awarded to students who are enrolled or have completed the Environmental Science course and intend to pursue a career in environmentally related fields.  Please visit the commemorative bench behind the college.  We welcome all donations to the current scholarship fund in remembrance of Dean and his work.


 

the love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach -- it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need -- if only we had the eyes to see.”, Edward Abbey.
