We are proud of our Kleen Team’s efforts to give back to the community, and we will be spotlighting a member’s volunteer work every month! 

At 6 foot 8, Terry Henderson towers over most folks and the natural question would be, “Do you play basketball?” The answer is yes – he played ball in college and went on to play professionally in Europe from 1997 to 2001.

These days, he works full time for Mister Kleen as a talent recruiter, a job that fits his friendly and warm personality. “I just really enjoy talking with people and working with people. And even though it’s the job to find them a position, I feel like I’m helping them obtain something whether they’re looking for a full time or a part time job. It’s a feeling of accomplishment when you can find that match.” 

He lives with his family in Woodbridge but growing up, he had always lived in the area surrounding Mister Kleen and graduated from Edison High School, just a couple miles down the road from the office.   

When he’s not interviewing potential members of the Kleen Team, he keeps his love for the game alive helping area youths achieve their own basketball dreams. 

After serving as the girl’s head coach at Mount Vernon High School, he returned to his alma mater and was head varsity coach at Edison for 15 years. The “all-time winningest coach” in Edison’s history, Terry took the team to the state final four in 2012, losing to district rival Wakefield High School. 

He didn’t confine his lessons to the court, either: “Through coaching, I help the kids understand that you have to give back to the community,” and they’ve organized multiple community events, including coat drives and feeding the homeless at DC shelters during the holidays.   

He also volunteers with the Alexandria Kings, a nonprofit program that helps youth improve their basketball techniques, and on an informal basis offers his expertise to area youths to learn some skills for free.  

“I love the game so much, we just open the doors and pass the word that the gym will be open from 2 to 4 or 4 to 7, and we’re working on ball handling. You know, those skills to help you attain the courage to try out for your team or to help you work on your skill set.”
