2018 – Joe Hendrix

Joe Hendrix, a May 2018 graduate of Redwater High School, earned the rank of Eagle Scout by creating and launching a dyslexia advocacy program, Navigating Dyslexia, in partnership with the Literacy Council of Bowie and Miller Counties. Having dyslexia has not kept Joe from completing more than 30 dual-credit college hours, achieving a multitude of academic, athletic and extracurricular honors, including membership to the National Honor Society, and graduating in the top 10 percent of his class.

Joe continues to serve his school and community through leadership positions in his school’s Student Council and Key Club.  In addition to a busy schedule of activities including varsity football, basketball, and tennis, Joe makes sure that time spent with his younger brother is a priority.  A small town boy at heart, Joe is looking forward to beginning his studies at the University of North Texas in the area of Geographic Information Science.
