The quote that would best describe Amber is, “Don’t let your good be evil spoken of.” James adds, “I would love to leave a legacy behind. When students hear the name James Parrish, or they think about struggling and not being able to complete courses, they think of me and say I was a role model.” “I hope to be a role model that individuals are able to model their life after; and understand that there were a lot of adversities I had to face, but I can eaern my degree and can finish at the top of my class.” He added, “No matter what they go through or no matter what life brings them, they should never let themselves feel as though they can’t make it.” The quote that best describes James is, “If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.”
The Parrish family stands on the Word of God and if it had not been for God, they would not have made it thus far along with their four sons. Amber says, “Without God, we would not be here, without God, there would be nothing.” The Parrish Family is a family that stands behind the love of Jesus Christ. Without him, Amber says they would not be in school or have the Parrish boys. The couple states that their family stands for nothing but Jesus Christ. Amber and James Parrish have been a great help in our community with God’s help and they won’t be slowing down anytime soon. This powerhouse couple will still stand on the Word of God and assist CCC and the community when needed. The couple are role models for young men and women, and non traditional students who want to earn a degree. They have been married for 12 years, but been have together for 13 years. The Parrish family resides in Vineland, New Jersey with their four boys, TreShawn, Terrell, Michael and Christopher (CJ). James, Amber and TreShawn have been students at Cumberland County College since 2009.
