KC mourning loss of Joe M. Hendrix

Kilgore College is mourning the loss of Joe M. Hendrix who passed away Feb. 10 after a long and hard-fought battle with Parkinson’s Disease.

Hendrix worked at KC from 1977 until his retirement.  He served as dean of the Longview campus where he achieved many honors including the dedication of the Joe M. Hendrix Building at KC-Longview.

He was instrumental in his career starting educational programs for police, nursing, welding and cosmetology.  His goal was for each student to be able to live up to their full potential.  

A memorial service is set for 1 p.m. Saturday, March 10, at Trinity Episcopal Church in Longview.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers memorials be made to KC-Longview.  Contact Leah Gorman at 903-988-7521 or lgorman@kilgore.edu if you would like to do so.
