“Operations are the lifeline to any organization. We value our commitment to the communities we serve and have become good stewards of change and development. In order to effectively lead, we must effectively grow. With growth comes the obligation of providing a safe & secure environment and fostering educational outcomes that change the trajectory for our youth.” Bob Mackey, BGCNCG, said.
In 2016, Parr was hired as the Education Coordinator for the Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club under the direction of Bob Mackey.

After graduating, Parr was named a Site Coordinator with Communities in Schools where he planned and implemented school-wide programs and tutoring services for students who were likely to drop-out based on academics, behavior, or demographics.
