CHS Names Perry Key ’78 As The 2019 Distinguished Graduate

Catholic High School has selected Perry Key ’78 as its 2019 Distinguished Graduate. While raising his family and pursuing a successful career in banking, Perry has generously shared his time through volunteer service, especially to the Catholic church, school and retreat endeavors. A daily mass attendee, his Catholic faith has always been his priority. For more than 20 years, he has made annual retreats at Manresa and for more than six years, he has served as an adult volunteer leader on CHS senior retreats.

Throughout his life he has served his parish in a variety of ministries. Perry serves as a lector, Eucharistic minister, retreat captain for Manresa, member of the Diocesan School Board, chair of the finance committee, member of the CHS Foundation Board, member of the Grizzly Greats Athletic Hall of Fame, and as a senior retreat volunteer for CHS.

“Because of his steadfast faith, his willingness to share that faith with others and his life-long commitment to serve, we are proud to hold up Perry Key as a model to our students,” said Lisa Harvey, CHS principal. “He is a great example of what we hope all of our graduates become.”

Perry and his wife Jerelyn have been married for 33 years and they have raised three children, including Christian, a 2013 CHS grad. Perry will be recognized on January 28, 2019 at the Diocesan Distinguished Graduates banquet.

Congratulations, Perry Key ’78!
