Dean James Henderson Scholarship

As you may know my father passed away a couple of years ago, and in his honor there is now a HWS scholarship. We need your help. Here's how.

As some of you know, the Hobart and William Smith (HWS) Colleges' Afro-Latino Alumni and Alumnae Association (ALAAA) recently created a scholarship in memory of my father, James Henderson; and my family and I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the kick-off fundraising event this past weekend.

"The Dean James Henderson '75 Award of Merit" will be given to a HWS student of color who embodies the spirit of Dean Henderson and his love of learning and athletics. ALAAA's initial goal is to award a $25,000 scholarship to a HWS sophomore student by the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year. Their long term goal is to create a $100,000 endowment for the scholarship.

My family and I feel very honored to have such a scholarship created. My father was passionate about helping students achieve their educational dreams, and we know that this scholarship will help make that happen for a student.
