Henry Laxson

Henry Laxson chose to attend Armstrong because he wanted a more intimate college atmosphere with a strong academic focus.  

“Armstrong helped me discover what I truly wanted to do with my life and led me in the right direction,” he says. “It’s an amazing university.”

Henry will be the first person in his family to graduate from college, setting a positive example for his younger sister and making his family proud. “My future goals are to finish college with a criminal justice degree and then get my master’s degree in global security,” he explains. “From there, I plan to join the military and eventually to work with some kind of law enforcement agency.”

Henry says Armstrong has helped him grow academically, personally, and professionally. “Armstrong has helped me find out who I am and has also pushed me to achieve success,” he says. “It has provided me with the tools in life I will need long after graduation.”
