Holder said the party selected Perkins for the honor because of her dedication to the local party. “She is always supportive and loyal to the principles and values of the party and is always one of the first to volunteer whenever there is work to be done,” Holder said.
Perkins has served as a member of the Carter County Republican Party’s Executive Board for more than 20 years and was also a highly active member of the group before joining the board. She has held the positions of secretary and chaplain for most of the years she has served on the board.
“No one is more deserving of this honor,” Holder said. “We want to congratulate JoAnn and thank her for her dedication.”
