Mr. Nolan Henkle
Hi! I'm Nolan Henkle, and I've been a happy member of the Jaguar family since 2014. I'm an Ankeny graduate, and it feels great to be back home. I am the Assistant Director of Choral Activities in charge of directing Centennial Singers Silver, Centennial Singers Maroon, and Cantamus. I also have the honor of working with Eternal Rush--one of our five high school show choirs. I love my job and am proud to say that my students far surpass my expectations every day! Please visit our Centennial Choral Music website for the latest info on our department, and download our CCM app to your smartphone to stay in the loop!
I started my college journey at Duke University, but I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts with a bachelors degree in Music Education. In college, I performed a lot in musical theatre productions, operas, a cappella groups, and multiple choral ensembles. My goal, now, is to make sure that I offer these same life-changing experiences to the students of Ankeny Centennial!
In my free time, I love to aggressively cheer for my Atlanta Braves, my Huskers, and my Duke Blue Devils. I also love to stay caught up on all my guilty TV shows and podcasts.
Feel free to catch me in my office during the day, call me, or (preferably) email me! I'd love to get to know you!
Ankeny Centennial is a wonderful place to learn and grow, and I couldn't be more proud to be a part of it all. From my wonderful colleagues down the hall to the brilliant administrative team...ACHS is the place to be. Go Jags!
