He is widely known throughout the area and has been instrumental in advancing agriculture in the classrooms in Bullitt County including helping to get a computer lab for agriculture classes. Henderman also donated time and equipment for plowing and re-seeding the Boy Scout Camp.

In addition to his many roles at Farm Bureau including President for the last three years, he has been involved in the District Conservation program, the Bullitt County Extension Service, a Kentucky Cattlemen’s member, Farm Credit Services Board of Advisors, the Bullitt County Farmers’ market Committee, and his church, to name a few.
