Parkey is experienced in gymnastics, cheerleading
instruction, and choreography. He moved to Hawai‘i this
summer from the University of Louisville in Kentucky, where
he was cheerleading captain for two years and earned a B.A.
He recently graced the cover of Cheerleader & Danz magazine.
Parkey says he’s excited about this year’s HPU cheer
team. “We have a great group,” Parkey said. His experience
will no doubt help to continue HPU’s winning tradition.
In April, the Hawai‘i Pacific University Cheerleaders
placed first in their division at the National Cheerleaders
Chick-fil-A Collegiate Championship in Daytona Beach, Florida,
beating out hundreds of the top U.S. college teams. In 2003,
the HPU team also took home the first-place trophy.
