In addition, we manage and award large scholarships including the Hale Family Scholarships, the Charles Richardson Education Scholarships, and the Grady Ash Academic Scholarships.
Each year, Henderson ISD staff members have an opportunity to apply for educator grants, which are funded through the Education Foundation. The Foundation Board of Directors awards approximately $30,000 annually for innovative instructional projects.

The “Tradition of Excellence Banquet” is the highlight of the academic year for Henderson ISD. Each spring, the banquet honors the top ten percent of the Henderson High School graduating class, along with each student's most influential teacher. The banquet is a result of the Foundation's mission to support student achievement and encourage staff excellence.
