WC School Board Welcomes New Member
Long time community member, Don Henry, joined the West Carrollton School Board on Wednesday, November 5, 2014. He replaces Andy Wagner who resigned from the board last month.  When Henry learned of the board vacancy, he didn't hesitate to apply.  "I just knew I wanted to do this."

Henry and his late wife, Connie (who worked in WC Schools for 37 years), have served the district as athletic boosters, coaches, and advisors. He is currently a member of the Dorwood Optimist Club serving the youth of the community.  "Service to humanity is the best work in life, and that's how Connie and I lived," Henry said.

Now retired, Henry's business background includes extensive experience in logistics and compliance; this has shaped his strong problem-solving abilities. "I'm always looking for alternative solutions."  When it comes to communication, Henry is a natural listener who "takes things in" thoughtfully. He learned the importance of that skill early on and used it to nurture great relationships within the community and at work. "Listening is a skill we can all get better at. Effective listening and interpersonal skills helped me manage people remotely (in business), and it gave me leadership opportunities throughout my life in community service."

He is excited to begin this journey as a board member...looking most forward to handing a high school diploma to a West Carrollton High School senior on graduation day. Outside of that experience Henry wants to strengthen community support for our schools. "It doesn't matter if you have kids in school or not. We have to be informed and be involved in our schools. It's this kind of mindset that helps our kids and helps our community."
