The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) has announced Stephen Henderson as its 2024 IBEW Journeyman of the Year. The award was formally presented at the IBEW Construction and Maintenance Conference on Saturday, April 20, by Kenneth Cooper, IBEW International president, in Washington, D.C.

Accompanying Henderson to Washington, D.C., were his wife, Jessica; Bob Wolf, business manager of Local 714; Dave Hendershot: president of Main Electric Construction, Inc.; Anthony Webb, president of Local 714; and Mike Baker, Executive Board member.

Henderson, a master electrician with 18 years of experience, has distinguished himself in the field not only through his professional conduct but also through his remarkable workmanship, according to IBEW. His nomination came following high praise from Malek Asfeer, who witnessed Henderson’s exceptional contributions during the construction of a new hospital in Minot..

In addition to his on-the-job excellence, Henderson has served as an apprentice instructor for seven years and has been the treasurer for the IBEW for the same duration, demonstrating his commitment to fostering growth and excellence within the trade.

Henderson has played significant roles in major construction projects, including the Minot International Airport, CHI St. Alexius, Trinity Health medical complex and Minot North High School, leaving a lasting impact on the infrastructure and community.

“I am excited and grateful to receive this award, but it belongs to my co-workers as much as it does me,” Henderson said.
