Building Named to Honor Kenny Perry

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- A house at Potter Children's Home has officially been named after Kentucky-native and pro-golfer Kenny Perry.

For the past four years, what's now called the Perry Home has housed two single-parent families and a mentor couple who assists them.

Potter has almost 50 residents who get counseling and groceries while they stay there seeking options for success on their own.

Perry and his wife have contributed to the home for a long time.

"When kids are hurt or down and out, they feel like they've got no future, it's hard to take. It's hard to see, and this place gives them an opportunity," Perry said.

"The Board just felt like it was time to give this building a name, and really couldn't think of anybody who was more deserving of it than Kenny and Sandy," said Ralph Brewer, the executive director of Potter Children's Home.

The Potter Home relies on gifts from churches and individuals to offer its free services to those in need of guidance.

Perry was also named Southcentral Kentuckian of the Year on Wednesday.
