Barry Henderson was recognized for more than 25 years of service by receiving the F. Wiley Hubbell Award for outstanding volunteer service at United Way of Roanoke Valley’s annual meeting on January 12, 2010.

The F. Wiley Hubbell Award recognizes an individual for outstanding volunteerism, leadership talents, and service to United Way of Roanoke Valley.  The award was named after its first recipient, F. Wiley Hubbell, who was a long time member of United Way of Roanoke Valley’s Board of Directors and a dedicated volunteer. Since 1985, there have been 28 outstanding United Way volunteers who have received the F. Wiley Hubbell award.

Henderson began working with United Way early in his career and became a strong supporter when he was assigned as a Loaned Executive for the campaign in the early 1980’s.  Even as his career moved him to different markets, he continued his work with United Way.  He served as Board Chair and Campaign Chair for the United Way in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County.  As he moved back to the Roanoke Valley, he quickly became involved with United Way of Roanoke Valley again as a Board member and served as a community investment volunteer.  Most recently, Henderson served as Campaign Chair in 2005, Board Chair in 2008 and led a Community Solution Team for Health and Self-Sufficiency.

“Barry is a great community leader and has been selfless in his desire to provide opportunities for children, families and older adults to improve their lives.  He is very deserving of this award,” said Frank Rogan, President and CEO of United Way.  Although unable to attend the meeting to receive the award in person, Henderson provided a heartfelt acceptance speech via video for the recognition.  He knew Wiley Hubbell personally and was honored to receive the award named after such an inspiring community volunteer.
