White gave all for Limestone County

Named to 2013 Limestone County Sports Hall of Fame

Henry White wore many hats during his nearly 40 years of public service to Limestone County. His first job in the Limestone County school system was as a young social studies teacher at East Limestone High School. He later served as a coach, principal, umpire and school board superintendent. After retiring from education, he served in the Alabama House of Representatives.

“People in Limestone County are special,” said White, who has been named a 2013 Limestone County Sports Hall of Fame inductee. “They are very gracious in their time and effort in helping others. Hopefully, I was able to give back some of what Limestone County gave me.”
