McHenry has been studying piano for 15 years, and he plans to continue his education after Reinhardt pursuing a masters degree in pedagogy and performance. In addition to piano, he also plays the saxophone and guitar. McHenry is a resident of Cherokee County and a graduate of Sequoyah High School. His parents are the late Michael McHenry and Rebecca McHenry.

"I was very honored to receive a scholarship from an organization such as the Steinway Society," said McHenry. "Music is an important part of my life and to receive acknowledgement of your talent is a great honor."

McHenry counts his parents as the biggest influence on his life, and musically, lists Chopin and Liszt as his favorite composers, "their music touches me deeper than any other composers."

At Reinhardt, McHenry is a student in the Eulene Holmes Murray Department of Music and part of the growing music program. The College offers a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a concentration in performance/pedagogy.
