FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
President of A. Perry Homes, has served on the Settlement’s Board of Directors since 2014.
Current Board Chair, Robert Best, passed the gavel at the Settlement’s Annual Meeting in April. Best, and Settlement President Ron Manderschied are excited for Perry’s leadership. Manderschied said, “Tony was introduced to the Settlement several years ago, and fell in love with the mission and the people we serve. I know he will bring that passion, along with his expertise and leadership to this position.”
Perry has been the force behind two annual events benefiting the Settlement, and has been an advocate for families, as well as a generous supporter since coming to the Settlement. His expertise as an architect, while we launch an expansion, and his leadership in fundraising are assets the Settlement is grateful to have. He is a right choice to launch the next stage of the Settlement’s history.
