Henderson will help schools


DANVILLE — Editor:

I urge everyone who lives in the boundaries of the Danville Public Schools to vote in the election on April 9, and vote for Lon Henderson, a person with outstanding qualifications to be a member of the Danville Public Schools Board of Education.

He has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in education from Illinois State University and has done extra study at EIU and the University of Illinois. Lon worked in education for more than 35 years with an emphasis in special education.

Lon Henderson has been very active in the Danville community; with memberships in the local AMBUCS, Rotary, a volunteer in Habitat for Humanity, a past president of Danville Light Opera and a member of the YMCA.

Lon is a man of integrity who is a positive consensus builder. He is available and an outstanding listener. Married, with two grown children who attended Danville Public Schools, Lon has great respect and concerns for public education.

Lon Henderson is a quiet, reflective person who will consider all points of view and help establish sound budget and educational principles for our children.

I am proud to support and vote for Lon Henderson for the Danville School Board.

William B. Black
