I am a former student of Doctor Parks at Penn State Altoona. I had Doctor Parks for 4 classes during the late 80s. Since I am physically disabled and confined to a wheelchair, I required some accommodation in my classes, and she was always very willing and helpful to do whatever was best for my education. She was a very good teacher, and I enjoyed her classes immensely and learned very much from her. She will be missed. Doctor Parks was a great lady. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Dee Blazier
