LIFELONG FRIENDSHIP INSPIRES GIFT
Donor Spotlight: Kathleen Parker
 
This is the story of Kathleen (Kathy) Parker's journey and lifelong connection to Côte d'Ivoire.  It continues today as Kathy helps Ivorian students realize their dreams of a college education through her generous gift to the IUGB Foundation's "Invest for Success" Scholarship Campaign.
 
It was a long journey. Upon graduating from high school in 1961, Kathy decided that "....she would like to join the Peace Corps...."  That decision charted the course of her career and shaped the rest of her life.  She could not predict travel across several continents, a new lifetime relationship with an entire family, or that this relationship would progress from "friend" all the way to beloved "Memi" ("Grandma") to several children in Côte d'Ivoire.  Certainly she could not know then that she would help a young Ivoirian woman obtain a higher education, and ultimately help others do likewise through the IUGB Foundation and "Invest for Success."  Read More...
