I grew up in Stanton and graduated with a business administration degree from the University of Alabama. I attend the First United Methodist church of Clanton. I am married to Jodi Parnell and have two children, Jack and Jenna. I work at Parnell Inc., a family-owned and operated business.

I serve as an appointed Chilton County commissioner and plan to seek election to that position. I also serve on the National Forest Resources board of directors and their executive committee. I serve as an advisor on the National Log a Load for Kids board.

Personally, I’ve lost my brother-in-law to brain cancer, my dad has recently completed his second round of treatments for prostate cancer, and I witnessed an employee’s daily battle to defeat breast cancer.

I hate cancer and the pain and devastation that it causes and would love to eradicate the disease from the face of the earth.

My mother, father, sister, grandfather, aunt and uncle have all been affected by this disease we call cancer. This is the reason I wanted to get involved!

Yes, my family has been hit hard by this disease, but sadly I am not a rarity. Seldom can you find someone who cancer has not affected, either themselves or someone they love.

The American Cancer Society provided lodging for my dad through the Hope Lodge at Birmingham while he was taking treatments every day for seven weeks. ACS provided hope and love in the form of, ready-made‚ hair for my sister during her chemo treatments.

I am blessed to be married to my wonderful wife of 12 years, Renee. I also am thankful to work within our family business, Reynolds Wood Products, where we have served the public since 1952 with all of their forestry needs. I am so very privileged to serve as bi-vocational pastor of Randolph Baptist Church, where God is doing awesome things!

Ecclesiastes 4:12 says a cord of three strands is not easily broken, meaning together we are stronger and together we can do more. The ACS provides a way for us to be that strong cord that is not easily broken! That’s why I am proudly wearing pink!
