He goes into his law office every morning at 8:30 and leaves every afternoon at 6:30 just as he did when he was practicing law full-time, but he isn’t practicing full-time any more. He uses the time mainly to help others, to improve the quality of life in his community. Some of his service includes free legal work for his favorite causes.
He is a strong environmentalist. He is a big supporter of Trees Columbus and the Coalition for Sound Growth, two organizations that work tirelessly to keep Columbus green and beautiful.
He has a generous heart.
He’s “Mr Habitat,” having helped form the organization in Columbus and continuing to work building houses for the needy over the years.
“Even though he is a lawyer, he is still a good guy.”
He is the perfect example of someone who gives back to his community.
That’s what we learned from friends and fellow Columbus attorneys about Columbus Attorney Kenneth Henson today when he was given this year’s Rotary Club of Columbus Dan Reed Award for Service Above Self. “Service Above Self” is the Rotary motto.
Since his environmental attitude and mine are in perfect harmony, and since I just like him anyway, he certainly has my congratulations.
