Pachyderm Foundation & Award with Senator Ted Cruz
Time & Location
About the Event
Be sure to register to virtually join The Pachyderm Foundation as it elects its newest members to its independent board of directors, and we welcome Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for a keynote address. The National Federation of Pachyderm Clubs will also have a short presentation of our George W. Parker Award and the national Tough Tusk Award. The Pachyderm Foundation --an entity separate and apart from the Pachyderm Clubs-- was formed over 30 years ago by George W. Parker Sr.. George was a strong believer in the necessity of developing young people for future political leaders and he founded the Foundation as a tool to accomplish this mission. The Foundation was established as a 501(C)(3) private foundation to allow for a tax exempt status. The purpose of The Pachyderm Foundation is to promote the development of political leaders. This includes advancing political education and the dissemination of information on the U.S. political system. The Foundation annually awards participating local Pachyderm Club chapters one Boys State and one Girls State scholarship.
Senator Cruz will have a brief Q&A session, moderated by Justin Lurie.
