Alice Parker

"As an advocate for agriculture I support the EDC because it promotes the importance of agriculture in Grant County and presents the opportunities for additional agriculture business such as processors and other agribusinesses to the County."

Alice Parker came with her husband and three children from Colorado to the Royal City in 1965. Alice has been involved with the Columbia Basin Development League since 1992 and is an early organizer of Women Involved in Farm Economics. She served as the state president from 1978-79, and national president from 1988-1989. In additional to serving on the EDC board of directors, Alice is currently serving as the Natural Resource Chairman for National WIFE.

Alice has been recognized by the Moses Lake Chamber of Commerce in the Ag Hall of Fame, as a leading Grant County citizen in the agricultural industry. Alice is just as passionate about agriculture today as she was years ago. She knows that a good safe food supply is one of the most important things in our country.
