Centennial (DeMolay) Service & Leadership Scholar (IHO Stacy Cockerham) – Parker Hastings
Parker Hastings is in his sophomore year at Belmont University majoring in Music Business. He plans on graduating Belmont University in 2022 with an MBA in Music Business. He would love to pursue a career in the music industry as an entertainer/performer, but is also continuing to learn about the changes within the industry and the numerous job opportunities it presents.
Parker noted, “This year I am excited to be more involved on campus. I was hired in the spring as a resident assistant in one of the upperclassman apartments, and am really enjoying being an RA! I am also an active member in the CMA Edu group on campus, and I also plan to get involved with one of the ministries on campus.”
Parker shared that this past summer, he had numerous opportunities nearly every weekend to travel around various states and cities across the country and share his gift of music with others. Parker is excited to start planning where he will travel and perform next summer.
When asked to reflect on what Leadership means to him, Parker notes, “Leadership to me means guiding others along a path that goes in a positive direction. Being a helpful resource and role model to others is all part of leadership. A good leader is someone who is constantly looking out for others before themselves and is always a step ahead.”
