He is passionate about using web and video collaboration tools and processes to increase literacy. Henry came to the literacy field in 2014 after watching an adult literacy class taught on public television. That motivated him to conduct web research and he was totally shocked by the facts and statistics he found. As he says, “I had a blind spot to illiteracy.” Since 2014, he has been on the path of learning about the impact of low literacy, children’s brain development, the 30 million word gap, the cycle of poverty, and the very powerful indicator of school success and graduation ... being able to read on grade level by 3rd grade. He has also worked on a two-generation family literacy program (that has not yet fully launched).
He holds a Master of Public Administration (Maxwell Graduate School of Citizenship and Public Affairs) and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Syracuse University. He has studied Behavioral Science and Organizational Development at University of California. He has been a volunteer and/or Board member for community organizations, one of which was a Business-Education Partnership. Henry and his wife (Ruth Ann Forrester) have conducted youth development for Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
