David F. Hendrix, Ed.D Teacher Grant
Dave has long been an educational advocate for the children of our community, as well as a mentor for many teachers and administrators. Dave’s life was spent working for the good of schools and served forty-four years in many educational settings. He was known to many as a Superintendent, a mentor, director of Connect, as a professor and we especially remember his work with the board of directors of the Education Foundation. Dave served on the teacher grant committee and enjoyed handing out the checks to those who would be presenting the award to the teacher. His educational background and attention to detail helped to make the teacher grant arm of the program committee what it is today. We remember his legacy with the “David F. Hendrix, Ed.D” teacher grant established in 2008.
So far 13 grants have been given in David Hendrix's name totaling $13,657.97 benefitting 1,253 students.
