Ms. Mary Jo Mann, 1962 Henderson graduate, will be the guest speaker at the Hot Springs area Reddies luncheon on Friday, February 14, 2014.  Mary Jo grew up directly across the street from Henderson and is a third generation Henderson alumni. Mary Jo served as Henderson's alumni director for many years before her retirement and is known as the "Pine Tree Lady." She has delivered the Pine Tree Speech, telling the traditions of Henderson, to every freshman class since 1988. Mary Jo was the recipient of the "H" Award in 1999 and received the Distinguished Alumni award, the highest honor Henderson bestows, in 2005.

Come and celebrate with us, the 100th anniversary of the birth of the Reddie Spirit, and hear the Pine Tree Speech.  Brush up on your Henderson history; you may have the opportunity to answer a few HSU trivia questions and win a prize.

There is no cost to attend, other than the cost of the meal you choose from the menu.  If you are on a tight schedule and unable to stay for the entire luncheon, please feel free to leave at any time.

These groups also play a vital role in recruiting new students to Henderson by hosting informational meetings, receptions, and attending college fairs. If there is not an active chapter in your area, contact the Office of Alumni Services to get information and assistance in starting an alumni chapter.
