Iberia Parish School Superintendent Dale Henderson is retiring after working in the school system for 39 years.
He started as a high school English teacher in 1979 and has worked as the district’s superintendent for 11 years.
Henderson played a key role in implementing standardized testing and says one of his biggest accomplishments was raising nearly $172,000,000 for school improvements. "It’s really paid great dividends, said Henderson. If you look at the facilities we have here in Iberia Parish, if you look at the technology, if you look at our sports facilities, if you look at our student achievement scores."
"I enjoyed every minute of it," added Henderson "It’s really been a great ride."
