From Chevy Chase, Maryland, Henry Warner played both football and lacrosse during his years at Saint James.  He was Senior Prefect his sixth form year and also served as captain of the lacrosse team, a sport he excelled in for three years.  Henry earned all-county honors three times and was also selected as both an Adidas All-American and MadLax All-Star his senior year.  He feels playing two sports made him a better athlete.

“It forces you to be more well-rounded, to push yourself outside of your comfort zone, and practice skills you normally wouldn’t,” Henry said.

It was no surprise that he continued playing lacrosse at the collegiate level, attending Drew University.  Henry majored in business with a minor in environmental studies and served on Drew’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.  He saw significant playing time in each of his four seasons at Drew, serving as captain his senior year. Henry feels he was prepared for the rigor of college during his time at Saint James.

“The structure that Saint James applies to every student’s daily life is incredibly important," he said. "You learn how to manage your time effectively to succeed in your studies, athletics, and social responsibilities." 

Henry currently lives in New York City and works for Jones Lang LaSalle as an Assistant Vice President in commercial brokerage. 

"My industry tends to attract athletes because you have to be willing to learn on the run, adapt quickly, and be open to criticism," he said. "Being able to do all of those things while being goal-oriented has absolutely helped me flourish in a big organization."
