            Perry is a longtime supporter of his alma mater, Austin Peay State University. In 2013, Delta Dental of Tennessee contributed $25,000 to support the new Center for Entrepreneurship at APSU. Civic Bank and Trust, led by Tom’s brother, Robert Perry (’69), also contributed $25,000 to that project. Both brothers also serve on the APSU College of Business Advisory Board.

            In 2011, Delta Dental donated $10,000 to jumpstart the Reagan Giving Circle at APSU. The University established the Reagan Giving Circle to honor the entrepreneurial spirit of Dr. Carmen Reagan, the first female dean of the APSU College of Business and an influential community leader, volunteer and philanthropist.
