The NASCAR Foundation presented Parker White, the founder and executive director of BackPack Beginnings, with a check for $25,000 for being one of four finalists

for the foundation’s Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award. The finalists were honored Tuesday during the foundation’s inaugural Honors Gala at the Marriott Marquis in New York.

As a finalist, White received an expense-paid trip to New York. Accompanying her at the gala were Tanevia and her mother, Aviance McCollum. Tanevia is a student at Hope Academy and a Greensboro native. This mother and daughter represent one of the many families that benefit from the hard work of White and the all-volunteer staff of BackPack Beginnings.
