Habitat for Humanity of Henderson bids farewell to Terry Emrick (top photo), President of the Board of Directors since July and welcomes Paul Bird, Jr. (bottom Photo) as its new President entering 2010. Both local businessmen have served on Habitat's Board for a number of years and been very involved with the organization's activities. Terry leaves Henderson as the President of The Bank of Henderson to take a similar position with a bank in Cynthiana, KY. He was chair of the Search Committee for Habitat's executive director in early 2008, has served on a number of administrative committees and was involved most recently in the Pickin' & Pedalin' Bike Tours last summer and as a construction volunteer on The Apostle's Build project at 511 Plum Street. Paul is with The Henderson Insurance firm. He has been active with Habitat's Family Services and Resource Development committees, was involved in securing the new ReStore location and developing Habitat's endowment and foundation.
Henderson Habitat's Board of Directors is an active group of eighteen volunteers from across the county involved in real estate, banking, construction, law, industry, insurance, church, agri-business and private commerce. The Board meets monthly to review the affiliate's operations, finances and future endeavors. Members are generally elected in June to a three-year term of office after serving on an administrative committee or in a special event.
