I love being greeted every morning with a warm smile, a kind greeting, and a knuckle bump. Mr. Parson is a humble, genuine, caring, and upbeat person who is an absolute joy to work with on a daily basis. He is an uplifting and life-changing support for past and present CMS students, and a real blessing to all who encounter him. He truly deserves this recognition for all the lives he's touched, blessed, and changed!
He not only starts the students day off Good, he brightens the day of every parent at drop off!
As a parent who volunteered at Colony Middle School for 6 years, I was able to see Mr. Parson interact with the students. He always greeted everyone with a smile and made them feel that they mattered. He was very well liked and respected throughout the school despite the fact that he was the person in charge of discipline. Glad to see Mr. Parson being recognized this way.
You are AMAZING!!!! You are truly the LIGHT in the dark places of the students you work with.. I enjoyed working with you the 3 years we worked together!!!
May you be blessed beyond measure.
Yo you owe me $10..... lol
I'll always know that when my kids see your positive attitude first thing in the morning that they are going to have a great day at school. Always so great to see someone so fresh, upbeat, and happy first thing.
Mr Parsons, I want to thank you for being you. I look forward to dropping my kids off at school so I can give you a big smile and a wave as I passed by. You are always so happy and encouraging to all those children that pass by you in the crosswalk to enter school, giving them a high-five, fist bump or singing something and maybe some Dancing. You are very deserving of this award! Again thank you for being you!
Mr. Parsons rules the school!
Dear Mr P,
Congratulations on this prestigious award. You have indeed been a life changer! You were there when my children were in school! You were there as a great support for me when we were working together and then became a friend. Mr. Parsons, the love of the LORD shows through as you go about your day dealing with students. You are we'll deserving of this recognition. Enjoy and be blessed!
With love Sherry W
He is the heartbeat of our school!!
He plays such an important role in the lives of students because he uses every encounter as an opportunity to teach a life lesson. He brings light into dark situations. Can always count on him to be uplifting and life changing.
Mr. Parson goes out of his way to ensure that students are cared for and welcome within our school. He has been able to take students who are not connected with positive role models and form a supportive relationship with them. When students see Mr. Parson they run up to him, beaming and share with him their life events. He is able to draw students out and absolutely changes their lives.
My son has autism and severe anxiety, one of the medications he was on for a while caused him to have suicidal ideations and Mr Parson was one of the few people he would talk to and open up with about what was going on. I believe that Mr Parson helped save his life by being there while he was struggling with everything going on in his mind. Thank you Mr Parson for being there for our son and all the other students at Colony Middle School.
I've worked with Eugene for 15 years and I can say without hesitation that he is the kindest, hardest working, most compassionate man I have ever met.
