Educators Day - Dr. George Henderson
Today we’re grabbing our books and pencils so we can learn! We know school is different now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still learn and celebrate our teachers. Today’s theme is inspired by Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Dr. George Henderson. His hometown is Norman, Oklahoma. Dr. Henderson moved to Oklahoma in 1967 to teach at the University of Oklahoma and became Oklahoma’s first distinguished professorship. Dr. Henderson is also a civil rights pioneer and has dedicated his life to achieving equality for all in education and life. He works diligently to keep education at the center of his efforts and his work. Dr. Henderson is also an author and dedicated speaker. You can learn more by reading Dr. Henderson’s Oklahoma Hall of Fame biography.
