October 23, 2009 — The Parker Alumni Association recognized alumni who have made a tremendous difference in the chiropractic profession during Parker College of Chiropractic’s Annual Homecoming and Class Reunion in Dallas, Texas.
Dr. Marco La Starza ’04 was honored with the Young Alumni of the Year award, which is given to a recent graduate because of his/her passion and dedication to chiropractic and Parker.
The 2009 Alumni of the Year award was presented to Dr. Patrick Bodnar, assistant professor at Parker, for his devotion to giving back to the university. He is a very well-known entity at Parker due to his commitment with the students and all members of the Parker family.
The James W. Parker Award was created by the Charter Class to recognize individuals who live the principles our founder left to guide us. He was a man who had a vision greater than himself and lived to make this world a healthier place for all. Dr. Michael Hall ’90 was given the 2009 James W. Parker Award.
The annual Homecoming and Class Reunion event also included entertainment, a chance to reconnect with classmates, and meet others who walked the graduation stage before or after their graduation year. This year is the reunion year for graduates from classes 1989, 1994, 1999, and 2004.
