Parker Dagenais

This named award is established by Susan and Paul Dagenais in memory of their son, Parker, who passed away at age 20 as a result of a fatal car accident in October 2019.  Parker was a 2017 graduate of Fenton High School, where he was honored as the 2016-2017 Homecoming King. Parker was a junior at LSSU, where he studied Sports Management and served as the student assistant coach for the LSSU Women’s Laker basketball team. If Parker didn’t have a ball in his hands, he had a game on the TV, and sometimes both. He loved basketball, soccer, golf, and anything else that involved competition. He was an avid University of Michigan fan his entire life. His newfound love came to be Lake Superior State University. Successful candidates must be a current student with at least sophomore status who is seeking a major or minor in Kinesiology with a minimum 2.75 GPA.  Selection will be based on an essay describing the values of the applicant and explaining their goals in pursuing a career in Kinesiology/Sports Management.
