The A.S.E. Award in honor of Dr. James B. Henderson serves as a legacy to Bossier Parish Community College students in recognition of the school’s fifth Chancellor for his commitment to North Louisiana students. Chancellor Henderson’s priority has been to expand access so that more students may prepare to enter and succeed in Louisiana’s workforce.

His leadership acumen has led to a breaking down of those higher education obstacles which have traditionally barred many from fulfilling their educational goals. The award equally honors Dr. Henderson’s vision for creating innovative programs which attract talented, high-performing students.

Ultimately, the A.S.E scholarship seeks to assist North Louisiana citizens in leading lives transformed by an education which opens doors to high-wage, high-demand careers.
