HALL OF FAME: A RECORD OF NSPRA HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENTS

Perry M. Di Loreto

Perry M. Di Loreto - A symbol of determination, perseverance, excellence and commitment to family, community and country.
At 47 years old, a time when most worry about pulled muscles and extended recovery times, Perry took up the sport of rodeo.
He earned his Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association card at the age of 55, and went on to win both the Senior Pro Rodeo National Finals in 1997 and the “One Day - $1 million” Reno Rodeo Invitational Team Roping title in 2005.
Over the years, Perry had the opportunity to assist special needs children and give them the experience of riding as a therapy and he raised funds and built the Therapeutic Indoor Riding Arena at Marvin Piccolo School. Perry was also the driving force behind the Indoor Activity Center at the Kids Cottage that is operated in conjunction with the Children’s Cabinet. Both of these projects were in Reno, Nevada.
But there is one enduring commitment to a special group of Nevadans that is foremost in Perry’s heart.
Perry founded the Nevada Patriot Fund and rebranded as the Nevada Military Support Alliance, the NMSA’s mission is to assist Nevada service members and their families when and where they need assistance most. In recognition of his commitment and contributions on behalf of our Military, Perry was recently awarded the “Patrick Henry Award”, which is the civilian equivalent of the Distinguished Service Medal, by the National Guard Association of the United States.
Perry has been recognized by 2012 Multiple Sclerosis Champion of Champions and the 2012 Raymond I. Smith Civic Leader of the Year Award presented by The Reno/Sparks Chamber of Commerce. Other awards Perry has received are Builder of the Year 1987 & 2011, American Lung Association Honoree 2002, City of Reno Outstanding Service provided to the City of Reno 2007, Inducted into the Home Builders “Hall of Fame” 2012 and Inducted into the Junior Achievement Business Leaders Hall of Fame 2013.
