Academic Dean COL Mike Goad promoted legendary faculty member Joe Henthorne to Colonel this past Thursday in front of his fellow faculty members. COL Henthrone arrived at Fork Union Military Academy in 1992 and has served 28 years as a full-time faculty member and English Department Chair. Henthorne has announced his retirement and Term 5 will be his final term here at the Academy.
“COL Henthorne’s commitment to academic excellence and integrity is second to none,” said COL Goad. “A devoted educator and scholar, he has vigorously committed himself to the Academy’s college-prep vision throughout his 30 years of service to our school and our cadets. Given that this could be his last term in the classroom, it was only fitting that he be able to walk away from three decades of dedicated service as a full Colonel.”
Congratulations, Colonel Henthorne!
