A Lifetime

in West Ashley

Perry Keith Waring is a native Charlestonian and the son of Mr. Louis L. Waring, Jr. and  the late Mrs. Seloris Collins Waring.  He grew up West of the Ashley in the St. Andrews Parish area known also as District Seven.  He graduated from Middleton High School and received a BS degree in Banking and Finance from the University of South Carolina.  

 

Keith’s parents instilled in him and his siblings by example that you must give back to your community.  As such, Keith applies his business acumen to the needs of the  Charleston community by serving on different boards.  

He is a member of St. Patrick Catholic Church and a life member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.  Keith has been married for 40 wonderful years to the former Donna Lango.  They have 3 adult children and several grandchildren. 

 

Keith tries to live his life by this motto: "Always give honor to God, have an abiding love for family and have enormous respect for the community."
