On January 23, 2017, Mr. Ed Parks was honored for his long-standing contributions to Public School Academies of Detroit (our District's governing school board) with a portrait by our own Isis Earth.

Mr. Parks was the first PSAD board president and continues to serve as a board member. The portrait will hang in a building that is named in his honor.

Isis, an HFA: SCS National Art Honor Society member, was selected for this commission after submitting a preliminary piece of work for consideration and was invited to join the presentation ceremony.
