The University of Mount Olive’s Tina Parks has been recognized with the Milestone Award at the Conference Carolinas second Legends of the Game Banquet on Monday afternoon on the campus of Barton College. This year’s ceremony honored three administrators that have provided immense service to their respective institutions over the years.  The honorees received either the ‘Milestone Award’ or ‘Legend of the Game Award’ to commemorate their careers. The ‘Milestone Award’ is given to an administrator that has at least 15 years of service in collegiate athletics. Parks was honored with the Milestone Award for her over 20 years of service to collegiate athletics. Parks came to the University of Mount Olive as the Administrative Assistant in December of 1995.  Parks is the Athletics Department Office Manager at UMO.  She prepares and distributes all national letters of intent and scholarships on all student-athletes.
