The Polk County community gathered recently for a ceremony to honor former PCSO Sgt. Barry Henderson. The ceremony honored the fallen law enforcement officer, who impacted many lives in the community, with the naming of the intersection of Highway 101 and Highway 278 after him.

Henderson died in March 2021 from complications of COVID 19.

Henderson’s widow Chrisy was joined by other family members, fellow officers from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and officials from the City of Rockmart as State Sen. Jason Anavitarte and State Rep. Trey Kelley presented the family with the new signage going up at the intersection of Highway 101 and Highway 278 in Rockmart.
