When Indiana fifth graders study history, one of the points of emphasis set forth by state standards is the American Revolution and the founding of the Republic.

Parker has been a teacher at Wolcott Mills Elementary in LaGrange County for nearly 25 years.
His method of teaching his students about one of the most turbulent times in our nation’s history has earned Parker an ING Unsung Hero award.
