Lansdale Henderson

Lansdale Henderson is a 2013 graduate of the University of Virginia where he earned a B.A. in Neuroscience. While at UVA, Lansdale was an American Scholar for the Society of the Cincinnati, a Lawn Resident, an Echols Scholar, an ISI Honors Fellow, and an Elzinga Residential Scholar at the Center for Christian Study. Lansdale has a number of scientific achievements to his name, contributing authorship to an article for the Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics, and an article in review for the Journal of Neuroscience. Lansdale has also been a participant in numerous Neuroscience conferences, where he has presented his own research. Lansdale believes that Christians are desperately needed in biomedicine and he particularly admires Christians like Dr. Francis Collins for their positive work in the field. Lansdale eventually hopes to pursue an MD/PhD, but before that he anticipates that the John Jay Fellowship will help broaden his understanding and sharpen his faith as he reads great and important thinkers in the Christian and Western traditions and as he engages with other fellows both in the classroom and through informal discussions.

Our country needs great leaders--and they are made, not born.

Program costs for each John Jay Fellow are just $25,000 per year and include housing, training, living expenses, materials, and work projects. A gift for a portion of this amount would be a great benefit to Lansdale Henderson and the John Jay Institute.

John Jay was one of the great architects of American liberty. As an author of the Federalist Papers, he played a critical role in winning ratification of the Constitution. As a leading diplomat, he helped to secure the place of the United States in the community of nations. As the first Chief Justice of the United States, he set an example of judicial probity. I'm delighted that Alan Crippen has named his new institute in honor of this exemplary American statesman. In his devotion to our nation's founding ideals, and to their propagation today, Crippen himself is a worthy heir to the tradition of Chief Justice Jay. I have no doubt that the John Jay Institute will help many of our most gifted young people more fully to understand and appreciate "the blessings of liberty" bequeathed to us by America's founding fathers."
