A Silver color metal and enamel device 1 1/4 inches (3.18 cm) in height overall with the top and bottom showing a Silver torch protruding from behind a shield blazoned: "Sanguine, a chain fesswise surmounted by a chain palewise cantoned by an open book inscribed "H C" in the first quarter, in the second, two clasped dexter hands fesswise, in the third a winged foot traversed and in the fourth a molecular symbol all Argent. Attached below the shield and in front of the torch base a Maroon scroll inscribed "HENDERSON COUNTY" in Silver base metal letters."
Maroon and gray are the school colors. The open book symbolizes education and represents the school with the letters "H C." The clasped hands are symbolic of fellowship and are a constant reminder that we must work, play and live together in a cooperative, constructive manner. The winged foot stands for athletics which develop a strong body and clean mind. The molecular symbol shows cohesion and strength in lifelong education.
The shoulder loop insignia was authorized 20 May 2002.
