“I spent a lot of years with (my dad) at the VA hospital,” Perry, 61, said. “There were so many folks who were in need of service, and when this position became available I applied for it. I just like to help people.”

Perry has served as the Alamance County Veterans Services Director since 2012 and was just named the 2015 SOAR Annual Award Winner.

“I really enjoy what I do,” said Perry, who joined the county department in 1991. “I am in this job so I can help folks, and that is my main goal. The veterans of this county really are my heart and soul.”
