The Jack Parker Scholarship Program has been awarding college and vocational institution scholarships to the children of Synovus team members since 1990. The program is named in memory of Jack B. Parker, whose career with Synovus spanned 44 years. Jack's enthusiastic attitude, keen sense of duty, and good heart were evident throughout his career, and this scholarship helps his legacy live on. The Scholarship Program is a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation that draws its support from contributions from Synovus team members.
