Wilmington man gets a "boost" with a new pick-up

A Wilmington man has something to be thankful for this holiday; he just doesn't know who to thank. Though his kids graduated from Laney High School decades ago, Eddie Parker has continued to be a driving force behind the Buccaneer's boosters club. In September, Parker got a call from Capital Ford telling him to pick up a new pick-up truck. Two months later, he still doesn't know who bought it for him. Parker suspects the replacement for his 1987 F150 was some sort of thank you for his support of Laney High School and its sports teams. He is equally gracious for the anonymous gift. “I had an old 1987 Ford F150. It ran fair. I didn't get too far outside of town, but now with the new truck, I can go anywhere I need to go,” Parker said. From taking tickets to selling hot dogs, Eddie Parker does what ever he can to help out the kids at Laney. And for giving his time, someone is clearly very thankful.

My guess

is that if he knew who it came from he would refuse the truck...I'm sure the person who bought it for him knows this....


Could not have happened to a more deserving person,,,,and what was not mentioned in your article,,,up till this school year Mr. P worked at Laney for many years in the EC Dept. and most of this work was done after a full day at school. So as i said no more a deserving person,,,, Happy driving Mr.P...
