Dr. Mancini was honored during a surprise celebration held on Parker College’s campus that followed the ribbon-cutting ceremony and dedication of the newly-renovated Dr. James W. Parker Museum. Parker alumni, faculty, staff, students, and friends joined to congratulate Dr. Mancini on 10 years of service to the college.
Dr. Mancini assumed the role of president in 1999 when he was just 33 years old, which made him the youngest college president ever in the United States. Since that time, he has successfully carried out the vision of Parker College’s late founder, Dr. James W. Parker by progressing Parker into one of the foremost chiropractic colleges in the world as well as positioning Parker as the leader in chiropractic seminars, continuing education, and research. Dr. Mancini also oversees the thriving Parker College Chiropractic Wellness Clinics located in Dallas and Irving, Texas, as well as the Parker School of Massage Therapy and associated clinic, located on the Dallas campus.
“I was called to serve chiropractic in a much greater capacity,” said Dr. Mancini. “I knew that by becoming president, my level of service to others could expand exponentially.”
Dr. Mancini’s enthusiasm for wellness and spreading the chiropractic message to the world has earned him recognitions such as: Humanitarian Award, Heroes for Humanity Award, Chiropractic of the Year Award, CEO Award, Vision Award, High-Spirited Citizen Award, Rising Star Award, Crystal Apple Educators Award, Extra-Ordinary Speaker Award, Award of Honor, Who’s Who, American Chiropractic Association and Texas Chiropractic Association President’s Award, and more. Dr. Mancini has been recently inducted into the Wellness Revolutionaries Hall of Fame for his contributions in this field.
“Great leaders are decisive. They accept challenges and responsibilities and have vision, knowledge, and terrific judgment. They are creative, innovative, and dependable and have a sense of humor, enthusiasm, and integrity. They strive for excellence and value their success based on the success of the team around them,” said Bill Nardiello, chairman of the Parker College Board of Trustees. “All of these characteristics exist in Dr. Mancini.”
