Former College Captain Chris Henderson addresses 2020 Academic Assembly

February 11, 2020

Chris Henderson attended St Patrick’s College from 1986 to 1991 and was the College Captain that year.

Chris has enjoyed a successful career in high level management working in human resources and recruitment companies.

However his life took a sudden unexpected twist three years ago when he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

Chris refused to let his illness curb his lifestyle or prevent him from playing footy – the sport he loves.

So last year Chris joined the Richmond Football Club to represent the Tigers in the Victorian Wheelchair Football League.

In his debut season he won the league best and fairest and was named best on ground in a premiership team.

Chris shared his inspirational and emotional story with students at St Patrick’s College when he addressed the 2020 Academic Assembly on February 11, 2020.
