WHO IS JOE HENDERSON?

Joe Henderson began his career in education as an eighth grade teacher. His favorite subject to teach was mathematics. When Mr. Henderson first started teaching, he was only four years older than his students. Later, he became a principal and also had to keep the busses running and the furnaces fixed. He organized a large band to play in local parades. Mr. Henderson eventually became the superintendent of elementary schools. He was honored when our school was named after him in 1986.
