Mike Perkins retired last Friday after 14 years of service with the Parkview Foundation and even more years of service to his community.
Perkins has served as the director of Parkview Huntington Foundation since 2008, and in 2020, began serving both Parkview Wabash and Parkview Huntington as foundation director.
Perkins has assisted with administering multiple scholarship programs and has organized and led numerous Co-Worker Generosity campaigns, golf events, hospital galas and so much more over the past 14 years. Prior to this role, Perkins was a Parkview Huntington Foundation board member and worked as the editor of the Huntington Herald-Press. He is a graduate of Huntington College where he earned a communication degree.
“It has been very apparent how much Mike loves his community and his family. Mike says his proudest moment in his personal life has been his marriage and the births of his four children. His greatest professional moment has been working with the Huntington County Medical Society and Parkview Huntington Hospital to establish the Huntington County Healing Partners program,” said Doug Selig, president, Parkview Huntington Hospital.
His advice to live by is, “You’re never too old to learn,” and his favorite quote is, “Laughter is the best medicine.” He will be spending his retirement doing what he can to help and serve his family and community.
