USD 490 has hired Heath Henderson as the new El Dorado Middle School Assistant Principal beginning the 2021-2022 school year.

Henderson is a graduate of Yates Center High School and earned a Bachelors of Science in Health and Physical Education from Oklahoma Panhandle State University.

After teaching physical education at the elementary and high school levels for 17 years, Henderson accpeted an Assistant Principal position at Washington Elementary in Wichita in 2019. He has also coached high school football, baseball, track and powerlifting throughout his career.

Education is a family business for the Hendersons. His wife, Christie Henderson, is the counselor at Blackmore Elementary. Their dog, Sam, serves alongside Christie as a therapy dog. Katie Youngers is their oldest daughter, and she has served as a long-term substitute at Blackmore since completing her Bachelors in Elementary Education from Fort Hays State University in December 2020.

Henderson also has an adult son in Chanute and a daughter who will begin her freshman year of high school in the fall. He says his family loves to travel and they are avid Auburn football fans.
