Birthday Benefit Bash - Turning 40 w/ a Cause!

The Tie-in - Sean Claes and Jeff Henderson (written in 3rd person):

Jeff Henderson

Sean Claes is a 1999 graduate of Southwest Texas State University where he spent 4 years working with and for Jeff Henderson. Claes credits Henderson for a large part of the shaping of his journalistic career and counts "El Jefe" as a good friend.

Professionally, Claes has done a few things with his journalism degree. he's the owner of Austin's INsite Magazine, and has been a creative copywriter for an advertising agency, a Communications Specialist, and is currently in charge of communications for one of the Global Learning and Development groups within Dell.

"There is not a week that goes by that I don't think about Jeff, hanging out on the front porch of Old Main talking, judging UIL with him and hearing bad jokes and good advice," Claes said.
As Claes reaches the landmark of 40 years old, he wanted to party with a purpose, so he contacted Fred Stewart with the Texas Intercollegiate Press Assoication and asked if he could make "The Jeff Henderson Scholarship for Journalism Excellence" the benificiery of the evening. And so it became a benefit.
