Sean and Tracey Henry will be honored for their work and service to Father Ryan and the entire Nashville community at the school’s 44th Annual Legacy Gala in January, according to President Paul Davis '81.
The Legacy Gala is an annual event that honors individuals from the school’s 98-year history who have significantly impacted Father Ryan and the community. This year’s event will take place on January 28, 2023, at the Music City Center.
Sean Henry is the President, Chief Executive Officer and Alternate Governor of the Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Arena. Tracey Henry actively volunteers in the area and serves on several boards, including STARS.
The Henrys have raised four children through the area parochial schools, two of whom graduated from and one who is currently a student at Father Ryan. In addition, their oldest child, Steven, is the Head Coach of the Irish Hockey Team. In 2016, the Henrys created the Henry-Manning Scholarship at Father Ryan to provide tuition assistance to one graduating male and one graduating female for their first year of college based on their service to the community during high school.
“With Father Ryan’s 2022-23 school year theme of ‘Community,’ the Henrys come to mind immediately due to their commitment to Father Ryan as parents, volunteers, and supporters,” Davis said in announcing the news. “Beyond Father Ryan, their work with the Predators Foundation, support of local businesses in Bridgestone Arena, and contributions towards creating a passionate Preds fan base are testaments to their genuine support of the greater Nashville community. We are grateful for the opportunity to honor them at the 2023 Legacy Gala.”
