Mr. Curt Henderson's Retirement from Team 1501

Never underestimate your ability to make someone else’s life better – even if you never know it.

Mr. Curt Henderson is one of the founding mentors of the defunct G-Force 535 and current THRUST 1501 FIRST Robotics teams. Curt has given 15+ years of volunteerism to the kids of Huntington County. Over 400+ youth have had a chance to be inspired by a professional engineer and several students have pursued engineering degrees because of the teaching passion Curt has shown our students and youth. Curt has formally announced his retirement from Team THRUST 1501 as the Lead Mechanical Engineering Design Mentor. Of course we will miss him, but his legacy will continue to inspire our team.

Curt, we thank you for everything you taught us on Team 1501. You picked a great year to retire, we made it all the way to Einstein and it was a memorable year for the team all around. Thank you for the countless hours of service you have given the kids.

PS: We are now taking applications for a new Lead Design Mechanical Engineering Mentor on Team THRUST 1501. If you are a design engineer, can teach and inspire 3D CAD, love kids, have a passion to compete like crazy, volunteer countless hours, and get paid a salary of zero dollars per year, please contact us.
