Among the activities being initiated to honor Kris' memory are the following:
- A coin receptacle has been set up in the KCH main office. The proceeds from the collection of coins will be donated to the Kris Parrish Scholarship Fund for Marcellus Senior High School students who are pursuing a career in nursing.
- A food drive is being conducted at KCH for the Marcellus Food Pantry in honor of Kris' memory.
- Letters, notes, and cards from students and staff are being collected at KCH to be forwarded to the Parrish family.
A memorial service was held for Kris on Friday Dec. 15 at Grace Chapel in Skaneateles. K.C. Heffernan Elementary School was closed for a half day so that staff and students would have the opportunity to attend the services. Our deepest sympathies go out to the Parrish family. Kris Parrish was passionate, dedicated, and caring. We will continue to be inspired by her courageous life as we mourn the loss of our dear friend and colleague.
