100% of Speaker Fees Go Directly to Nonprofit Efforts

Giving back to society is in my DNA. While I spent 30+ years in service to our Nation, my ability to be truly “philanthropic” by generous donations of money to worthy causes was limited. I spent over 15 years overseas in environments with sparse resources, so “philanthropy” meant spending time coaching youth sports teams, officiating various sporting events, and running concession stands to raise money for various service organizations. It didn’t seem like much, but it was important to support our servicemembers and their children. Even though the efforts were helpful, it didn’t seem like I was doing enough. “I’ll have more opportunities once I’m retired and settled in one place; I can have much more of a positive impact then,” I often told myself. That time has come…

The focus of my nonprofit/philanthropic efforts is on Youth (Character) Development and Scholarship. Giving young people a good start and a “leg up” in life is my passion. Too often in today’s American society, adults aren’t willing to model the behavior they want to see in their children but are quick to lament the actions of younger generations. Our Youth (Character) Development efforts, Leadership & Ethics Speaker Series, and Scholarship programs focus on effective modeling for our youth.
That is why 100% of our speaking fees go directly to our nonprofit efforts (www.calyxandbeau.org and www.totalcourage.org)

About Keynote Speaker Colonel Parker Schenecker

About Speaker Colonel Parker Schenecker…

Colonel Parker Schenecker was a Senior Leader and Strategist in the United States Intelligence Community, responsible for support to US and Allied defense and Counter-Terrorism efforts throughout the Middle East and the Horn of Africa. He finished his 31-year career at United States Central Command in Tampa, Florida with combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and over 20 deployments to the Middle East and Africa.

He has had the great fortune to work with and lead the best people America has to offer; individuals who swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and volunteer to put their lives on hold and put themselves at risk in defense of freedom and our way of life.

However, his greatest joy had always been his children and their friends. Calyx and Beau Schenecker were his greatest achievements; young adults who epitomized love, honor, friendship and citizenship. Calyx – the artist and runner. Beau – the soccer player and Future Business Leaders of America advocate. Both – bright futures ahead. Wise beyond their years. Colonel Schenecker spent his personal time immersed in the lives and various activities of his children and their friends.

That all came crashing down while on a time-sensitive deployment to Afghanistan. Calyx and Beau, his only children, were murdered by their mother while he was overseas. Immediately upon returning from deployment and after laying his children to rest, the Colonel made a promise – to remember how his children lived, not how they died – and began his philanthropic efforts in earnest. His nonprofit efforts provide Scholarship and Youth Character Development training and modeling.

His unique story of service, honor and resilience is inspiring. After 30+ years of government service, this great leader, role model and Dad has chosen to continue his service to society by remembering how his children lived.
