Preston Lee Parker, 16, a junior at American Christian Academy (ACA) in Tuscaloosa, recently received a $1000 grant from the Masonic Grand Lodge of Alabama and Masonic Lodge 509 in Brookwood. The grant is to support ACA Fishing Team.
Parker is the grandson of Robert Wayne Parker of Cottondale. The fishing educational program is designed to introduce students to fishing and to show students the ever-increasing career and educational opportunities through fishing. It also shows students how the basic elements of their education are used by tournament anglers every day out on the water and how you can use fishing and having fun to sharpen those basic skills that will help you later in life - no matter what your career choice.
