Board Member Focus: James Henderson Jr., Algiers Charter School Association

JamesHendersonJr-sqWhy did you choose to serve on your school’s board?
I felt compelled to offer my services in response to a newspaper advertisement. With 20+ years of experience in school district finance and accounting, 10 of which were at the helm of OPSB’s Finance Department, I felt I brought a unique set of skills to ACSA.

How did you become involved with your school?
Interacting with local schools was a huge part of community outreach programs of other civic organizations I am involved with.

What leadership roles have you held while serving on the board?
I serve as Treasurer and Chairman of the Board’s Finance Committee and a member of the Nominating Committee.

How can people help your school if they are interested?
We have a standing invitation for community volunteers. You may contact the ACSA School Support Center for additional information.
