Parker Graves’ legacy lives on
Parker Graves was by all standards the consummate student-athlete.
By the time he had completed his academic career at Tunica Academy in May 1997, the young man had amassed more honors – both on and off the field – than many entire classes before and after his time.
In addition to being voted “Best All Around Student” and “Mr. TIL” his senior year, Graves was an honors graduate, a National Honor Society inductee, an American Legion Student Award recipient and was listed in Who’s Who Among American High School Students.
