Mr. Tom Henke

Welcome to CrossRoads Intermediate School! I have been Director of Bands at CrossRoads since 2001. Before coming to CrossRoads I served as band director at Sandhills Middle School in Lexington District 4 (1999-2000) and Willston Elko HS/MS in Barnwell District 29 (1997-1998). I received my Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and performance certificate from the University of South Carolina. I hold a Master's Degree in Education from Southern Wesleyan University and am continuing course work towards my Master's +30. My professional affiliations include the South Carolina Band Directors Association, Music Educators National Conference, South Carolina Music Educator's Association and the Percussive Arts Society. I am a charter member with the Palmetto Concert Band and am currently performing with the Carolina Wind Symphony.


I reside in Lexington with my wife, Jenny, and daughter, Claire. We have 2 dogs, a cat and 3 fish. When not teaching band I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and relaxing on the lake.
