Parker University is proud to announce that its president, Dr. William E. Morgan, has been awarded the 2022 Congressional Veteran Commendation Award for the Twenty-Fourth Congressional District of Texas.

The Congressional Veteran Commendation is a nominations-based program designed to recognize the wartime sacrifices and peacetime community involvement of residents of this congressional district of Texas. Honorees are exceptional Americans in every way.

In recognition of this award, Parker University hosted a Veterans Recognition Luncheon on Saturday, January 28, 2023, where Congresswoman Beth Van Duyne and other dignitaries like Mayor of Coppell Wes Mays, Mayor of Southlake John Huffman, and North Richland Hills Councilmember Suzy Compton, presented several Congressional Veteran Commendations.

This award helps recognize how thankful the community is for Dr. Morgan’s service to our country and his ability to make so many sacrifices for others to help make the Twenty-Fourth Congressional District of Texas a better place.

In addition to Dr. Morgan, other veterans were recognized at the ceremony on the Parker University campus, including Ricardo Castanuela, Tracy Chumbley, Neil Larimer, Gunnar West, and Brandon Williams.

Parker University is proud to recognize its president and all the impact he helps make in our community. Thank you, Dr. Morgan!
