Parsons Has A Better Chance of Being Recognized


A Better Chance will honor Time Warner Inc. chairman and CEO Richard D. Parsons with its “A Better Chance Corporate Award,” the organization announced Friday.

A Better Chance is a national resource for identifying, recruiting and developing leaders among academically gifted students of color.

Parsons will receive the award at the organization’s annual awards luncheon Monday at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York.

“A Better Chance plays a growing and increasingly vital role in opening opportunities to the nation's top college preparatory and public high schools,” Parsons said in a prepared statement. “I strongly support this organization's mission and look forward to even more students of color benefiting from the best education available.”
