Trustee Jim Henderson Supports Eagles Care Fund

Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees Jim Henderson (HonDoc ’13) has been an Embry-Riddle supporter for years. He’s seen the campus community struggle in the past, but the impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on students is unlike anything he’s ever seen.

“Covid-19 has been very disruptive,” he says. “It is a unique and challenging time and some of our students and their families have been impacted financially. This is a critical time to help students remain on track for their degree.”

That is why Henderson, a trustee since 2003, decided to give to the Eagles Care Student Emergency Assistance Fund at all three Embry-Riddle campuses (Florida, Arizona, and Worldwide).
