Henry joined the FOX 34 news team in August 2011. He is a native of West Texas and has interned at many news stations in Lubbock.
Curiosity has always allowed him to venture into many different avenues, which has propelled Henry to land many opportunities at a young age. He started out in the legal field, at 15, where he interned with a local attorney and was exposed to civil and criminal law. Two years later, he then became the first high school intern for U.S. Congressman Randy Neugebauer. After graduating high school early, Henry was able still able to absorb much of the political world by working on casework for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, dealing with constituents, and representing the Congressman at various events. After a change of heart, at 19, he was given an opportunity to venture into the financial industry and became the marketing coordinator for the Texas Tech Federal Credit Union.
During his time at Texas Tech he was involved in many organizations. Under President’s Select he was an official ambassador for Tech where he recruited prospective students. He was a member of Deans Council for the College of Mass Communications. Henry was also the alumni relations chair for Mortar Board Honor society, which is comprised of the top seniors at Tech. Henry also graduated under Focus Lubbock, a program with the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce.
Always having a motivation for meeting new people and getting to know their story was rewarding to Henry to make him realize his true passion. During his last semester at Tech he was able to work with the Texas Tribune in conjunction with the Light of Day project. Alongside a fellow colleague and persistent professor the three of them were able to shed light on the number of Tech students who are victimized off-campus crimes. These crimes went unreported due to the restriction of the federal law, the Clery Act, which only deals with on-campus crime reporting.
After graduating in May 2011 from Tech with a degree in broadcast journalism Henry got a taste of reporting and became a freelance journalist with ABC’s KAMC news. He then made the move August 2011 to FOX 34.
When he is not reporting, you will catch Henry with his guns up supporting his fellow Red Raiders. He also likes to travel, stay active, read the Harvard Business Review and always discover something new about West Texas. (He is from here, but learns something different and new everyday.) He wants to know what you have to think so if you have a story idea, or suggestions send him an email.
