Christmas in Columbia 2012: Parade Marshal Alan Parnell

2012-12-02 - Downtown Columbia, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener. Alan Mercer Parnell, Parade Marshal, and his wife Bunny Parnell were in the lead vehicle after the Columbia Police Department Police car in the 2012 Christmas Parade. The Parnells now live in Louisville, KY, but make frequent trips back to his native Adair County. He is Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Lindsey Wilson College. Mr. Parnell grew up in Columbia, had a successful career with General Electric at Appliance Park, and founded the highly successful "Mr. P" trucking company, headquartered in Jeffersonville, Indiana. He still fondly remembers his Adair County roots before all that, and makes regular pilgrimages back to Sparksville, and the site of his early public education, at Rowetown School. (PS - He may have brought the luck of the Irish with him, as he was able to celebrate a Lindsey Triumph, as the Lindsey Wilson Women's Soccer Team won the women's third National Title, and will be bringing a 12th National Soccer title back to hang in Biggers Sports Center.)
