Dr. Dwight Henn, an educator and school superintendent in Ohio and Kentucky, and his wife, Diane, were looking to relocate and buy a retirement home near their children in Central Texas. Opportunities for intellectual, cultural, and physical stimulation were important to them. The Henns found the perfect match in the Georgetown area, with Southwestern University, the unique Senior University and the many amenities Sun City offers. While Dwight and Diane enjoy participating in a variety of Sun City activities including the Nature Club, Hiking Club, and the Computer Club, Senior University is one of their favorite involvements. One of their favorite international trips was a birding trip to Costa Rica with the Sun City Nature Club.
Georgetown abounds with lifelong learning opportunities including the celebrated liberal arts curriculum at Southwestern University. Senior University offers courses and special events including travel opportunities for persons over 50. Senior University’s primary objective is to provide quality learning experiences for its members. Classes offered this fall range from Astronomy for the Curious, to Beginning Memoir Writing, to WWII: History’s Defining Event. For $60 a person can take up to six classes per semester. Dwight is a member of the Senior University and served as president in 2008.
Another of Dwight’s passions is Faith in Action Caregivers where he is currently serving as president. The goal of this organization is to provide assistance to seniors such as providing transportation for medical appointments, grocery shopping and helping seniors remain living independently in their own homes for as long as possible.
Dwight also feeds his interest in local history, serving on the board of the Williamson County Museum.
