Courtyard Dedication
Did you know that Henderson Middle School used to be Henderson High School?  The Henderson High School Alumni Association recently installed a dedication plaque in our school courtyard commemorating the original dedication of the courtyard in 1972.  The courtyard was constructed in memory of classmate Sinda Paige Jones by the HHS classes of 1970, 1971 and 1972.  Thank you to the Henderson High School Alumni Association for helping keep the Cougar spirit alive at Henderson Middle School!
