Stacy Henry is a native of California and was born in Los Angeles. His family moved to West Covina where he grew up. He attended Orangewood Elementary School, Willowood Junior High School and graduated from Edgewood High School. After high school Stacy worked several jobs while waiting to enter the police academy.

Stacy has been married to his wife Lisa for the past 28 years. They have three boys who all attended schools in the Central School District. He was an active parent in the city, having coached his son's soccer teams and baseball teams as they grew up. He and his wife were also active parents volunteering at their kid's schools, Coyote Canyon and Ruth Musser. While volunteering at the school, Stacy began to understand that the teachers and staff at the schools were some of the most important people in our community. They show up every day and help us mold our children into the very best versions of themselves.
As a board member, Stacy believes that our first responsibility to our students and staff is to make sure they are as safe as we can possibly make them when they are at our schools. Once we have done that, we must provide every tool and resource we can to educate them.
“It has been an absolute pleasure and honor to represent my friends, neighbors, and residents of the Central School District as your elected voice on the school board.”
