Please join me in congratulating Mr. Perry Boyett on being our Herbies Hero. Born and raised in Florida, Perry and Mark became fast friends while attending Orange Park High School together, where they both enjoyed playing on the Varsity Football team, as well as took part in the theatre program including different productions. Perry earned a Marketing and Finance degree from the University of North Florida College of Business Administration and became a Manufacturing Software Salesman and Consultant. He has been with Alphacam running the sales department for the last 12 years. Perry has 4 children and has been married to Shelly Boyett, in which they just recently celebrated their 20 year anniversary. Perry and Mark moved to different parts of the country after school, but thanks to Facebook, reconnected and have enjoyed flying around the U.S. to different venues for Texas Holdem poker tournaments where they both share a love for the game. Perry was one of the few people to visit Herb while he was undergoing his treatment at MD Anderson in Texas and suffice it to say, he saw firsthand the toll the treatment was taking on him, but he also got to witness the determination and will to get better Herb showed. The moment Perry was informed of the founding of the Herbies Heroes Foundation honoring my father, Herb Ellerbe, he immediately wanted to help spread the word through his many connections on Facebook and LinkedIn, and help support the cause to finding a cure for this disease. He, just like the last 2 month’s Heroes, John and Caroline Bateman Sudhoff and David Baker, bought a % of Mark playing in a Poker Tournament at the World Series of Poker in which he also ended up profiting in the endeavor, and donated right back to Herbies Heroes in order to continue supporting the cause to raise money for not only the Herbies Heroes Scholarship given to a graduating Senior from our alma mater Orange Park High School, but also other deserving recipient individuals and organizations. Please join me in thanking him, and congratulating Mr. Perry Boyett, and my friend, on being our Herbies Hero.
