A Concert Series celebrating the birth of the Reddie Spirit


On the morning of February 3, 1914, a fire destroyed Henderson's Main Building, leaving the students without classrooms, a library, or a women's dormitory. The next morning, the students gathered and decided they would stay and rebuild their college. It was there that the Reddie Spirit was born. That same Spirit lives among us today

 “The undergraduate education in music that I received from Henderson has changed my life by opening doors for me both educationally and professionally. It prepared me for success by giving me the tools necessary to be a successful music educator. My BME achieved at Henderson afforded me opportunities for success in graduate and post graduate studies as well as professional advancement in addition to allowing my family and me the employment and thus financial security that is so precarious today without such educational opportunities. I am grateful to Henderson State University.”
