Dr. Danny Henderson, an exercise science professor originally from the New Orleans area, will be joining the faculty at Hendrix this fall.

A recent story in the Shreveport Times praised Henderson for a truly exceptional cross-country and track career, which includes NCAA championships and selection for the Nike Athletics West team.

“In addition to his impressive athletic accomplishments, Dr. Henderson brings a wealth of experience and a strong scientific background that will be of great benefit as we continue to enhance the Kinesiology Department/Allied Health Program,” says Dr. Robert Entzminger, Provost and Dean of the College.
