Quentin Lloyd Henry
On July 11, 1965, a precious baby boy was born to James and Betty Henry, whom they named Quentin Lloyd Henry. Quentin was reared in a loving and nurturing family. This baby was special because he was Betty's parents' first grandson.
Quentin began his formal education in the St. Helena Parish School System where his mom was recognized as a phenomenal teacher. He attended Greensburg Elementary and St. Helena Elementary schools before transferring to Southern University Laboratory School in Baton Rouge, La.
While attending Southern Lab, Quentin was not only a scholar. He played football for the beloved Kittens. He helped the Kittens win several championships of which he was very proud. Quentin, class president during his senior year, graduated with honors in the class of 1983.

With diligent work ethics, Quentin became Sr. Engineer at Boeing in Defense, Space and Security. His job assignment engaged business adventures in China, Japan and Africa.
