History of Hendrick
H. Wayne Hendrick
Plano ISD Superintendent of Schools 1961-1991
Hendrick Middle School was named for a man who made tremendous contributions to Plano Independent School District as well as the community at large. Dr. Hendrick began his career in education as a high school math teacher before becoming Superintendent of PISD. His tenure took the district through a time of rapid growth and development; starting with only 3 schools and ending with 45. Much of the acclaim that PISD has achieved can be attributed to his outstanding leadership and guidance as superintendent. Dr. Hendrick always believes "Let's be the best we can be!" His legacy is a shining example of what school districts can be; the best!
Thank you, Dr. Hendrick!
