PERRY — Perry Lutheran Home (PLH) announces the resignation of administrator, Quinn Adair, effective June 16. Adair has accepted a new position as Executive Director at MorningStar Senior Living in West Des Moines.


Adair, a Perry native, came to Perry Lutheran Home in 2012 to learn, grow, and eventually serve as the administrator for both the Spring valley Campus and the Main Campus.

“It has been an honor to serve Perry Lutheran Home for over five years. I have had the great opportunity to help build new levels of care, work alongside so many staff with tremendous hearts for what we do, and establish numerous relationships and special residents and families we serve. I have undergone a great deal of growth as a person and leader and will forever be grateful and proud of where it all started,” Adair said.


PLH Chief Executive Officer, Rev. Max Phillips offered, “we thank Quinn for his dedicated years of service to our Perry Lutheran Home family and to the Perry community. One of our goals is to develop young leaders and we are especially proud of Quinn and grateful for the leadership he provided during his tenure as administrator. We wish him God’s blessings in his new role.”
