My name is Yolonda Fountain Henderson. I am the President of the Jennings School Board. I have been a member of the school board since 2003. I am a proud Alumni of the Jennings School District. I currently have one child that attends Northview Elementary School and my other child graduated from Jennings Senior High.
I have served on PTSO’s, PTO’s, MSBA, NSBA, Back to School Jamboree, and Chairperson of the Alumni Committee. I have and will continue to volunteer my time to the Jennings School District. One of the projects that I spearheaded was creating fruit & vegetable gardens at most of our schools. I worked to help the district secure the Rain Garden Grant, which benefited three of our schools. The produce that is grown is donated to the Jennings Food Pantry for our residents.
As a member of the Jennings Board of Education, I’ve always worked to put our children first. I plan to work hard to make sure our children are successful. We have some of the best resources, including an excellent superintendent, the best teaching staff, safe environments for our kids and social programming for our children.
