news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:  Jim Perkins graced us today as our SOD. Jim was born in Warrior, (Birmingham) Alabama in 1946, 34 years to the day after Sertoma International was founded.
Jim has lived in Denver since 1950. He attended Abraham Lincoln High School. It is, of course, still standing.

He is a self-proclaimed sports nut. His 2 best sports were bowling and golf, the problem being for either game, the scores were the same. When he was about a year old, he had Polio so that drove him to get involved in anything he could to overcome the handicap. No matter what he was involved in, he always tried too hard to be the best. It could be sports, board games, boy scouts, bible class or any group activity.

He has been married twice, first to T.E.B., and now married to Alice since 1985. He has two children and one adopted. His son served in Iraq but is now back home, he is scheduled to retire soon. His daughter is Joe Dowdey's neighbor. Jim has eight grandkids.

Jim worked summers at Elitch Gardens Theme Park, until he wrecked their train. He then worked at the Colorado Department of Highways as a data “collector”, which was a bit more along the lines of a data “modifier”. He then went on to work as a cabinet maker.

Jim’s final and main career was for Norgren where he started as a sub assembler. He worked his way up to be the product manager for the Americas and the Pacific Rim. While working at Norgren he was able to finish his degree and went on to complete an MBA. Then, on March 10th, 1993 he fell down icy steps while attending a trade show in Chicago. He suffered a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, which rendered him paraplegic. He continued to work for Norgren, retiring in 1998.

Jim joined the Arapahoe Sertoma Club in 2003. He was brought into the club by Joe Dowdey and has gone through several chairs and helping whenever and where ever he can.
