We are honored to present Milton T. Parker III with the Hometown Hero certificate of appreciation along with a $50 gift card to Pignetti's Italian Restaurant for his service in the military and as a Temple police officer.

A graduate of Copperas Cove High in 2001, Officer Parker went to college at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas where he studied Kinesiology. After graduating he enlisted in the military and was stationed in Mannheim, Germany.

After serving six years, Parker settled back in his hometown with his high school sweetheart, Jennifer, and has two children - Madden and Manning. Parker is admittedly a football fan. Better yet, a Houston Texans fan.

Teleperformance and Townsquare Media are proud to recognize this man as a Hometown Hero. We hope you are, too. If you would like to nominate someone you know to be recognized for their selfless efforts, click the button below and God Bless.
