Summary:Banker and nonprofit chief executive Marvin Early Perry was born on November 10, 1944 in Elmore City, Oklahoma. He earned his B.A. degree and M.S. degree in economics from the University of Central Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University respectively. A graduate of the American Bankers Association Commercial Lending School, he founded the Black Board of Directors Project, with the purpose of filling the void of minorities on various corporate, charitable and public policy making boards and commissions. In twenty-three years, the Project has placed over 1,600 blacks and other minorities on various boards and commissions. In 1995, Perry became a founding board member on the Arizona State University College of Extended Education Dean's Council, helping the college reach out to Arizona's traditional and nontraditional learners through innovative methods to meet their lifelong learning needs. He received awards from Arizona State University in 2002, and from the University of Advancing Technology in 2007.
