Our SPCDP Executive CommitteeMan, Spartanburg District 7 School Board Member and late husband of Representative Rosalyn Henderson-Myers, SPCDP’s Executive Committeewoman, passed away this past Sunday at his home.
Kenneth was a staunch advocate for civil rights, public education and supporting youth in our community. He was the first to stand up proudly as a member of the Democratic Party for what is just and right in our community. He was always willing to pick up the phone, talk through issues, ideas and share advice. And that made him an extraordinary resource and friend as an incoming chair. – Kathryn Harvey
