Promise Partners

Imagine living in a community where each new generation can thrive and become the best and the brightest regardless of their personal situations. Imagine these kids grown up as happy, successful adults that stay here instead of leaving for other cities to build their careers. Imagine the industries and companies that will come to our area just to employ these “best and brightest.” This will all be possible when we ensure that the 5 Promises are delivered to the children of Henderson County.

By driving citizens to make a promise to the youth of Henderson County that we will make sure they have these resources, Henderson County will be helping them succeed academically, socially, and civically.

One thing is certain, doing nothing will result in nothing. It is time to take action. Become a Promise Partner and help us build on our assets to guarantee that Henderson County is not only competitive economically and a great place to do business, but also a desirable place to live and raise a child.
