“I have been a Henderson Reddie since I was four years old,” said Hardman. “I consider it a great honor that I have the opportunity to serve on the Henderson Board of Trustees. I look forward to listening and utilizing my common sense in order to do my part to revitalize that old Reddie spirit.”
Board chairman Bill Wright said, “Brown has been active in the affairs of our community and has a love for Henderson, his alma mater. He will blend the knowledge he has of the needs of the community with the mission and work of the university.”
