Every month, we pick a Professional and Personal Theme for the Crew Members, so that they can apply this to their work and development. For the month of October, the themes chosen are “Teamwork” for the Professional, and “Integrity” for the Personal. In this blog, we will talk about the West Virginian who exemplifies the latter, Eli Camden “Cam” Henderson.
We all know that the key factor in every sport win is teamwork. A highly decorated player and coach is a perfect candidate for our West Virginian of the Month. Cam Henderson is a Marshall University sports legend, who grew up in Marion County, West Virginia. He was a triple threat, who played football, basketball, and football. He attended Glenville State College, Glenville State Normal College at the time, where he developed his love for basketball and football. After graduation, he began his coaching career and became a principal at a Bristol High School in 1911, a school that did not even have an athletics program.
