ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A long-time Albany education leader is saying goodbye as he retires.

But he got one more chance to see the faces of many of the lives he's changed over the years.

W.T. Henry has been at Deerfield-Windsor Academy for 22 years.

He's spent 20 of those years as headmaster.

Hundreds including current and former students, along with parents and peers, turned out to thank him for his outstanding service.

Henry says though he's retiring he still plans to do a little work.

"I've got a son who has two restaurants here, Harvest Moon and The Catch, he has invited me to come up there and help him when I want something to do. I may still do a little work in education and consulting but it just won't be a five day a week job," said W.T. Henry, Retiree.

Sunday's reception was held for him in the gym at the school which also bears his name.

He plans to spend more time with family and go fishing more often.
