Cruise Into Fall 2016 With Dean Henderson!






Welcome Dean Henderson

The Cato Campus would like to extend a warm welcome to our new campus dean, Mr. George Henderson. When he is not overseeing the administrative operations of the Cato Campus, he enjoys spending time riding his Harley Davidson and collecting motorcycle memorabilia.

His love of riding has taken him to different cities across the United States including Houston, TX, Kissimmee, FL, and Washington D.C. to name a few.

When we had a chance to catch up with Dean Henderson, he was gracious enough to loan some of his most prized collectibles to the Cato Campus Library for display and also provide us with a sneak peak into his life on a motorcycle.

Check out some of Dean Henderson’s favorite pieces and a few photographs of his travels!
