Mr. Parkes retired last June after teaching for over 30 years. At FHCI, he was the Head of History and then the school librarian in his last couple of years.
He will be remembered for being a notorious punster, the master of the backwards walk (down the hall while still chatting with you) and, most of all, an all around super nice man!!
Here are a couple of pics from his retirement party: one is with Mr. Lee and the other is with his family.
