Stallings selected for prestigious summer program

Parker Stallings, a Morgantown native, has received a place on a Fulbright Summer Institute to study at the University of Bristol, United Kingdom, in one of the most prestigious and selective summer scholarship programs operating worldwide.

Parker has been selected by the US-UK Fulbright Commission to experience the UK on a three week summer program exploring the intersection of Arts, Activism, and Social Justice.  The Summer Institutes form part of the US-UK Fulbright Commission’s work to promote leadership, learning and empathy between nations through educational exchange.  The Commission selects participants through a rigorous application and interview process. In making these awards, the Commission looks not only for academic excellence but a focused application, a range of extracurricular and community activities, demonstrated ambassadorial skills, and a plan to give back to the recipient’s home country upon returning.

Parker is the son of Andrew and Stephanie Stallings and the grandson of Jerry and Kathy Tines. He is currently a sophomore at Western Kentucky University where he is a part of the Mahurin Honors College. He is currently pursing a degree in Professional Legal Studies and English Creative Writing with plans to attend law school after he graduates.  Parker is a member of WKU’s mock trial team and Pre-law Association amongst numerous other student organizations.  He is also the president of Butler County’s Democratic party. 

Parker’s dream has always been to make the world a better place. He has been diligently working toward a career in public policy so that he can help others, and he is confident the Summer Institute  will further this goal.
