Dr. Lenneal J. Henderson Scholarship A Project of College of Public Affairs

Dr. Lenneal Henderson retired from the University of Baltimore's College of Public Affairs (CPA) in January 2015. In celebration of his retirement, the CPA has established an endowed scholarship fund in his honor. The Dr. Lenneal J. Henderson Scholarship will provide much-needed financial assistance to deserving students in UB's Public Administration program.

Dr. Henderson touched the lives of so many throughout his 26 years of teaching. As a distinguished professor, Dr. Henderson left an indelible mark on the University, his colleagues, and of course his loving students. Dr. Henderson mastered his craft by pairing visual and performing arts with traditional classroom instruction to reach students of all learning styles. Dr. Henderson passion for teaching is only surpassed by his willingness to help others. Whether through dynamic leadership, advocacy, activism, or mentoring those in search of higher education, Dr. Henderson has given his time and resources freely over the years.

Says Apriel Owens, M.P.A. '13, when asked why establishing this fund in honor of her former professor is so important:

"Dr. Lenneal Henderson is the "student's gift" that keeps giving. As an M.P.A. student, Dr. Henderson taught me the value of professional affiliations. He paid for many of us to join professional organizations to learn beyond the classroom. Dr. Henderson insisted we network, engage, and collaborate on research papers for our professional development. Adult students face unique challenges and obstacles. Dr. Henderson is always willing to listen and calmly guide us through any dilemma. He taught us to persevere and never give up until we reach our goals. Dr. Henderson demonstrated how to advocate and champion causes solely for the benefit of others. As students, we learned to seek and join a movement much larger than ourselves.

I joined the Henderson Scholarship Campaign to give back and help preserve this rich Henderson legacy for many student generations to follow."

Your gift, when added with those of other donors to this scholarship, will help grow the endowed scholarship fund and increase the amount of funding we are able to provide to students. Please help us honor Dr. Henderson's work and preserve his legacy for future generations of Public Administration students.
