Janet Parker is an exciting addition to the Columbia Museum of Art's volunteer group. She brings with her enthusiasm for her local community and the arts and a passion to bring the two together at the Museum. Janet loves the CMA because "there is art from all over the world", and the Museum allows everyone, especially those who may not be able to go on a trip out the country or even the state, to see great works of art "right in their backyard."
Janet is a Virginia native, but is a true southern belle, having been raised in the small South Carolina town of Cheraw, home of jazz legend Dizzy Gillespie.
At a very young age Janet knew she would make an impact on those around her in some way, living out her mom's daily affirmation "You are destined for greatness."
Janet is a University of South Carolina graduate and joined the WACH Fox News team in July 2008. She currently serves as a lead anchor of Good Day Columbia, a four-hour morning program covering the community, news, and entertainment. She believes strongly in improving literacy rates and volunteers her time by reading at local elementary schools.
