Henderson would be asset


DANVILLE — Editor:

Lon Henderson would be an asset to the District 118 school board. He is a retired school teacher of 25 years for District 118. Throughout his years as a teacher, he has held many different positions: interim special education director, coordinated district teacher mentoring program, recruited for the district, special education director, district-wide special education coordinator and many more.

But most important, he is dedicated to putting the needs of children first.

I was first impressed with Lon’s ability to recognize a child’s needs for enhanced tutoring when he was at my home on an unrelated matter and overheard one of my young children speaking. He told me to look into speech therapy and pointed me in the right direction.

Please vote April 9 for Lon Henderson. His background, dedication and integrity could be a major asset to the board.
