Cousin Malcolm has confirmed that Vickie is OUR Vickie Parker. I had found this story a few weeks ago. She & Rick live on the old Parker farm below (but not the old house). Congratulations, Vickie! So many years of service was recognized with such a beautiful tribute. Grandfather Grover Cleveland Parker was the Principal of the old Belle Union H.S. & would be so pleased at this achievement. My dad went to DePauw, so all this is beginning to look like family!
