Rob Zazueta, Spokesperson for the Chino Valley Firefighter Foundation explains, "I would like to make you all aware of a very exciting time in our foundation. We have established a scholarship fund in memory of Wade Scott Parker to a fire science candidate from Chino Valley High School. This has been a long time coming and thanks to the generosity of our community, our foundation has the funds to move forward with our plans."
On May 18, there will be a Pancake Breakfast, held as a fundraiser to further support this scholarship fund. Stay tuned for more details about this event.
Wade Parker, a graduate of Chino Valley High School, was one of the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots that lost their lives in the Yarnell Fire last year.
