“Being a non-traditional student living off campus in the late 60’s, I did not participate in nor learn to appreciate happenings on the HSU (then HSTC) campus as I might have. For some reason, the farther I get away from the actual time spent at Henderson as a student, the more I come to love and appreciate it. I could never repay or catch up with the kindnesses Henderson has sent my way!”
