PARSIPPANY, N.J., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of a career in business spanning more than 40 years, which has included a steadfast commitment to education, John C. Parry, Chief Executive Officer of Solix, Inc., will be honored by the Tri-County Scholarship Fund (TCSF) at its gala dinner on Monday, October 28th at the Hanover Marriott in Whippany, New Jersey. TCSF is a non-profit organization which provides financial aid to economically disadvantaged children in Morris, Passaic and Sussex counties of New Jersey so they can obtain a quality education through accredited private elementary and secondary schools.
Parry, who recently announced he will be retiring at the end of the year, has served as CEO of the Parsippany-based company which provides eligibility determination, program administration and customer care services to government, telecommunications, broadband, utility and healthcare organizations since 2004. Under Parry's leadership, the company increased revenue by nearly 250% to $100 million and created hundreds of jobs in New Jersey. During that time, Solix has supported various educational institutions in the area such as TCSF and a scholarship at County College of Morris and has enabled a culture of volunteerism at the company by offering two paid community service days for employees.
"Tri-County is proud to honor John Parry for his leadership, commitment to our community and support for our mission to help bring quality education to our area's neediest children," said Gregory Floyd, President of the TCSF.
TCSF will also honor Sister Francis Raftery, S.C., President Emerita at the College of Saint Elizabeth in Convent Station, New Jersey and Mr. and Mrs. Walter and Irene Crum who have served a combined total of more than 50 years teaching young men at Oratory Preparatory School in Summit, New Jersey.
Since its founding in 1981, TCSF has provided more than $20 million in scholarships to thousands of underprivileged children who primarily come from families that live at or below the poverty level. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need and help students of all races, religions and backgrounds to help attend schools from kindergarten to senior year of high school. Over the past two years, 96% of TCSF seniors have graduated to continue their education at colleges and universities including Notre Dame, Rutgers, Georgetown, UCLA and Boston College.
"When you support TCSF, your contributions stay local and quickly make a positive impact on the lives of those who live in the community. In addition, the fund has a long record of successfully steering students to fine academic institutions and instilling the need to give back which continues the cycle of generosity and involvement," Parry said.
