    The Henry County High School senior project is a culminating exit program for all of our students demonstrating a senior’s ability to write, speak, apply knowledge, problem solve and use real world skills such as time management, organization, problem solving and risk taking.

    It took an extra inning and a heroic hit by Taylor Clark to seal the win for the Ladycats, who were trailing 3-0 after the second inning, tied the game during a big fourth-inning bat, and went ahead in the bottom of the eighth.

  • KERA about to reach 20th anniversary
