Todd says McHenry went to great lengths to explain to and educate the community about the appraisal process. McHenry developed a video titled “Who are Appraisers” on social media, which has been viewed and purchased by over 130 jurisdictions nationwide.

Todd says McHenry will forever have a lasting impact in the community due to his leadership. McHenry would tell staff that the work needs to get done, but family always comes first. Todd says he would always remember the names of family members and asked how they were doing by name.
