Adam Henderson: 1 of 20 candidates selected for Senior CLASS Award
Whitehorse Mustang Alumnus, Adam Henderson has been selected as one of twenty candidates for the 2012-13 Senior CLASS Award® in collegiate hockey.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition.
Henderson has been side-by-side with his teammates out in the Fairbanks community for the last three seasons, as much as possible. They make monthly visits to the Denali Center for “Sports Night” with its residents (both senior citizens and other Alaskans with disabilities). He has also helped coach the youngest level of hockey players in Fairbanks through the Ice Puppies program, volunteered his time with Big Brothers, Big Sisters and the “Bigs For A Day” event, Mush for Kids, the With All Your Heart Foundation and Hockey Week in Fairbanks.
Henderson graduated cum laude (3.87 grade-point average) from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in May of 2012 with his bachelor of business administration in finance. He was a member of UAF Student Investment Fund in 2011-12 and serves as a tutor for the class this year while he pursues his Masters of Business Administration. He is a member of the International Honor Society Beta Gamma Sigma, which is a business honor society that recognizes the most outstanding students of business at institutions accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Students are chosen by the faculty of their business schools to be invited to membership in the Society. He was Alaska’s Dirk Anderson Scholar Athlete and the program’s CCHA Scholar Athlete of the Year nominee.
Henderson was named the 2012-13 team captain for the Nanooks, as voted by his teammates and coaches.
