Welcome to

The Jan Henrick Achievement Award

Just before Christmas 2002, Jan and Kevin had discussed what they could do that would bring

hope and happiness to someone for the holidays. Having retired from the school

system, Jan wanted to give something back to the school. They enlisted the support of

Wharton High School and Plant City High School and agreed that 12 students from

each school, chosen by faculty members for having turned their lives around in some

way (i.e., better grades, attendance, overall positive attitude, etc.) would each receive

$150 to spend as they wished. Over the years, this award has increased to $300.00 and in

2011 we added Pasco High School in Dade City.
