Mr. Henderson, the NFL Executive Vice President for Labor Relations and Chairman of the NFL Management Council Executive Committee, is the driving force behind the NFL Player Programs. "These programs, under the expert guidance of Mr. Henderson, provide invaluable assistance to players in financial planning and money management, continuing education, business opportunities and counseling, and perhaps the most important element -- post NFL career planning. It is therefore with great pride that we are honor the accomplishments of Mr. Henderson and the NFL," stated Robert Shumake.

As a Federal Home Loan Bank board member, Mr. Shumake is responsible for regulating real estate policies to facilitate and enhance the availability of credit for housing and economic growth, including meeting those needs in low- and moderate- income communities.
