Today's Featured Biography


William Parkman, Jr.

As a postscript to all of the below, Jolene and I are now living in the Athens & Watkinsville, GA areas. After living in Greenville, SC for 36 years, we made another "huge life decision" in Dec. 2008 to move back to GA. Yea! We are loving it and especially enjoy being closer to the kids and grandkids. Hopefully they are enjoying it as well (free babysitting, free taxi service, etc., etc.). Any time you are in the area, please call or come by to see us.
After graduating from THS I attended ABAC for one year, then transferred to the U of GA. I majored in Accounting, graduating in 1964. I met my wife, Helen Jolene Whitaker, while at GA. We married in 1965. Jolene taught school in Charlotte while I worked for Humble Oil & Refining Co., now known as Exxon-Mobile Oil Co. We moved from Charlotte to Houston, TX and then back to Charlotte. I left Exxon in 1972 and went to work for Cryovac Div of W. R. Grace & Co. in Greenville, SC. I stayed there until 1977 when I left to go to work for Michelin Americas Research & Development Corp as their Controller. I spent the next 25 years working for Michelin in a number of different capacities, retiring at the end on 2002. I was very fortunate to work for three excellent companies during my career.

Jolene quit teaching school when we started our family. We were blessed with three great kids. They never gave us any trouble and always excelled in school. Georgianna, the first child, is a Tax CPA, is married, and has given us two wonderful grand kids - Whit who is 15 yrs old and Mary Claire who is 11 yrs. old. Joanna, our second daughter, is a Human Resources Administrator for the U. of GA, is married, and has also given us two great grandsons - Matt who is 15 and Jonathan who is 9 yrs. old. Both of the girls live in Watkinsville, GA, about 5 miles from each other. Will, our youngest (39 yrs old) lives in Atlanta, Ga, works as a Senior Systems Analysis and is married. He and his wife Kim have one son - Freddie, who is 1 yr old.

Since retiring, Jolene & I have stayed busy doing church work, working our garden, doing some traveling, volunteering with a couple of charitable organizations, vacationing at our lake house in Lake Lure, NC, working on family history, staying in touch with the classmates of the great THS class of 1960, etc. I sometimes wonder how I ever found time to work.

The Lord has blessed us in so many ways and for that we are very, very thankful.

I think we are all part of the greatest class to ever graduate from THS. Some may disagree with that statement, but I know for a fact our class is special. We have a closeness that so many folks today can't even begin to comprehend. I am so looking forward to our 55th Class Reunion. It will be here before we know it. Everyone be sure and visit our web page on a regular basis. You can learn a lot about what is going on with all our classmates. Diana Palmer Revels is doing a fantastic job with the web site. Be sure you tell her thanks for the great job she is doing.

Keep in touch.
