Financial services company Synocus, based in Columbus, Georgia, recently announced the recipients of its 2015 Jack Parker Scholarships.
Scholarships were awarded to 104 children of Synovus team members this year. The scholarships amount to $132,000 across all five states the company serves. Every year, internal fundraising activities and team member donations make up the scholarship funds.
Three students in the Charleston area - Rhys Matney, Marian Matney, and Stephanie Futrell - received scholarships.
The scholarship program is in honor of Jack B. Parker. Parker’s career lasted for 44 years with Synovus. His sense of duty, enthusiastic outlook and good heart were shown throughout his whole career. The Jack B. Parker Foundation, Inc. manages the scholarship program, which is dedicated to awarding vocational institution or college scholarships to the children of Synovus team members. The children must show strong leadership, good academics and involvement in activities that serve to improve their local communities. Since 1988, which is when the foundation was established, it has granted approximately $2 million in scholarships.
Synovus Bank's NBSC division serves 16 South Carolina counties from 39 locations. NBSC has specialized in relationship banking for over 100 years, and it continues to remain committed to its communities.
