    While basketball has opened many doors for Henry, his journey through and involvement in education extends far beyond the basketball court; his desire to offer kids opportunities in independent schools led him to McDonogh School in Owings Mills, Md. Henry team-taught a freshman English course, coached high school basketball, middle school track, and served as an adjunct dorm parent. His primary role at McDonogh was Director of The Foundations Program. This program was created to help first generation students and families’ transition into independent school settings. He also was Director of the Middle Grades Partnership, an initiative in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University and Baltimore Community Foundation.  

    Henry serves as Director of Admissions, a Form III advisor, and Head Coach of the varsity basketball team. He served as a Co-Chair for the National Association of Independent Schools People of Color Conference in the winter of 2011. While Henry is proud of his work in education, he admits his claim to fame is his two beautiful children, Bryce and Brooklyn.
