Extra! Extra! Read All About JoyceP!

Supervisor and mentor JoyceP has made the community proud by being featured in her local newspaper, The Franklin Sun, after taking home two WAmmy Awards this past January.  Joyce introduced thousands of readers to WikiAnswers.com in her interview.

Joyce garnered “Best Advice Answer” for “What steps can an abused woman take to protect herself and children?” and tied to win “Answer of the Year” for “What precautions should be taken before a hurricane hits?”.

The following is an excerpt from the article:

Winnsboro resident Joyce Parker is making a name for herself on the World Wide Web as an award-winning contributor for the fastest growing Q & A site on the Internet. WikiAnswers.com provides answers to visitor queries that cover a range of 4,700 topics. The site offers contributors, supervisors and mentors from all over the world, and yes, even Winnsboro.

Parker joined the Wiki family in 2008 where she was quickly promoted to Louisiana supervisor, one of only two in the state. In 2009, she received two WAmmy Awards for Best Answer of the Year and Best Advice Answer of the Year.

The answer Parker submitted for Best Answer of the year was to the question: “What precautions should be taken before a hurricane hits?” and “What steps can an abused women take to protect herself and her children?” received the Best Advice Answer of the Year.

“I feel the information I gave in those answers can help countless people, not just here in our local parishes, or just in the state of Louisiana,” said Parker, “but all across the country. I would like to get the information to as many people as possible.”

Way to go Joyce!

  1. Oops, I forgot to add this part in the above comment: Tim McGraw grew up in a small town about 30 miles from where I live. He and his wife, Faith Hill, come back every year to visit his family, who still lives here, and to sponsor a celebrity softball game. They also provide great music during the event, along with some of their celebrity friends, who participate in the softball game, too. The festivities go on for an entire weekend. But tickets to actually play ball with them have to bought early, because they sell out really quickly.


  2. Louisiana is also the state where Bonnie and Clyde were killed in a shoot-out with the police. The place where they were killed is about an hour drive from where I live. There is a ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ museum there, too.


  3. Two unbelievably brilliant and super-useful answers from JoyceP. Thanks so much for bringing those to our attention.

    WikiAnswers and JoyceP, you both rock!
