LHSAA head man out after mutual split
BATON ROUGE - The man who oversaw one of the most turbulent times of high school football in Louisiana is out after seven years on the job.
Kenny Henderson took over the reigns of the high school athletics governing body back in 2007, however the last three years have been rocky since public and private schools decided to split and for their own postseason championships.
Henderson's contract was set to expire in June, however the decision announced today is an immediate departure.
Ouachita Parish High School Principal Todd Guice has been named the head of the search committee to replace Henderson.
Below is the statement released today from the LHSAA following the decision"
"The LHSAA Executive Committee and its Executive Director, Kenny Henderson, have mutually agreed that it is in the best interest of the association and Mr. Henderson to sever their relationship, effective October 24, 2014.
The Executive Committee wishes to express its appreciation to Mr. Henderson for his dedicated service over the last seven years, the improvements made during his term as Executive Director, and his efforts in meeting the many challenges which have been faced by the LHSAA during that period.
The Executive Committee will immediately begin the process of searching for a new Executive Director. A committee has been formed to initiate that process, which will be chaired by Mr. Todd Guice, Past-President of LHSAA and Principal of Ouachita Parish High School.
