Wallace, N.C. -- Henry Shimp of Charlotte was honored last weekend as the 2014 recipient of the Carolinas Golf Association’s (CGA) David Parrott Award. 
Shimp, the 2014 Carolinas Junior Boys champion, was selected from the eight team members that represented the CGA in the Carolinas-Virginias Junior Team Matches at River Landing Country Club in Wallace, N.C. 
 The David Parrott award is given annually to the Carolinas Team player who displays excellence in sportsmanship, ability, and academic excellence. The award is presented by Dr. Larry and Joy Parrott of Camden in honor of their son David. David Parrot was diagnosed with leukemia in the spring of 1982 and during his brief illness, he participated in the golf camp at Duke University and competed in the SCGA South Carolina Junior Championship, finishing third in his flight. He was given the Derek Davis sportsmanship award at the championship for his effort, determination and inspiration he gave to all who knew him.
David died July 29, 1982 at the age of 16.
