Dover resident Richard J. Henken was recently elected clerk of the Board of Trustees of the Catholic Schools Foundation. Henken had previously served as a member of the Board of Trustees.

In this role, Henken will lead the efforts of the board in helping to raise and distribute over $7 million a year in support of Catholic education and the foundation's signature program, the Inner City Scholarship Fund. 

"I have been continually amazed at the work the CSF/ICSF does to support some of the region's neediest families by providing their children with the opportunity to receive a Catholic school education. Not only do our Catholic schools provide these children with a first-rate education, but they do so in a loving, nurturing and supportive way centered around basic Christian values. Just visit any one of our schools and it is obvious from the minute you step inside what a difference a Catholic school education can make in the lives of these kids and the impact it will have on them, their families and their communities," said Henken.

"Rick Henken's commitment to young people and proven leadership will serve well the foundation and more importantly the many at-risk students attending our schools," said Mike Reardon, executive director of the Catholic Schools Foundation.

Henken is the president of Boston-based Schochet Associates. Henken also sits on the board of the Rental Housing Association, where he is secretary and chairs the Affordable Housing Committee; and the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University. He resides in Dover with his wife, Sarah.
