Jack Scoble: a man of vision with a lasting legacy.
Jack Scoble Scholarship
Jack Scoble was a man passionate about his Christian faith and passionate about his community. He was once asked if he would go into church ministry and his response was that he already was in ministry. He was in ministry as a "lay person".
The late Mr. Scoble MBE, OAM was Mayor of Parkes from 1966 to 1979. He died in 2003, providing a profound legacy of community involvement, civic pride, leadership and high personal values.
Parkes Shire Council, supported by various community groups is pleased to offer the Jack Scoble Educational Scholarship on an annual basis as a meaningful way to recognise the quality and longevity of his services to the Parkes community.
