Greetings AFCEANS!

You and your guests are cordially invited to the March 12th Women in AFCEA Event.    It's not just for women - this event is a celebration of women in leadership, women growing in STEM fields, and those who support women in these roles. 

Featuring Guest Speaker Heather French Henery speaking on Life Experiences as a Woman in Leadership

Heather French Henry has been a local, state and national advocate for military veterans and their families for over 20 years. She has served both Governor Beshear and Governor Bevin as the Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs, serving over 300,000 veterans in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Her role in the department provided oversight for nearly 900 employees serving in four state veterans nursing centers, five state veterans cemeteries, statewide veterans benefits and programs that served both homeless and female veterans. Her love of the military came from her admiration for her father, Ronnie French--a disabled Marine Corps veteran of the Vietnam War. Heather took her family's experiences with her father's healthcare and military issues nationwide to develop partnerships with federal government agencies and local community service organizations. During her year of service as Miss America 2000, Heather worked in the halls of Congress, held strategic meetings with the White House, and visited veterans in hospitals, homeless shelters and veteran service organizations across the nation.

Heather is from Maysville and Augusta, Kentucky. She graduated from the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art & Planning. She is married to Dr. Stephen L. Henry––former Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky. They have two daughters, Harper Renee and Taylor Augusta. Together, the Henry’s founded the Kentucky Prostate Cancer Coalition, which provide free prostate cancer screenings at the KY State Fair. They established the Rosemary Clooney Museum in Augusta, Kentucky, featuring the famous White Christmas Collection. In addition, Heather assists with the Future Fund Land Trust in its effort to save Floyd’s Fork in Jefferson and Bullitt Counties. She also owns and operates Rose Hill Boutique, La Fille Magazine, and the Heather French Henry Collection. The family resides in Louisville, Kentucky.
