Stanley became my childhood friend when my mother began to run the Bethany High School Teacherage in 1948. He never liked sports but loved monopoly, Rook, Setback, and Chess. In high school he was a manager and "bat boy" of the baseball team. He often helped his father, Johnny Perman, in the landmark "country store" on Highway 65. His mother, Gladys Outlaw Pearman, was a first grade teacher at Bethany for many years. Stanley quite bright and finished high in his Bethany High school Class of 1954. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and was later graduated from Bowling Green University in Kentucky where he majored in accounting. He remained in Kentucky for his career. He was a lifetime member of Bethany United Methodist Church where he attended Sunday School weekly until he left home for college.
