The North Carolina Community Foundation announces the second scholarship award from the Andrew Stephen Hendrix Memorial Scholarship Endowment.
The scholarship was awarded to Christopher Lane of New Hanover County. Lane is a student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he is pursuing a career in health care. “I aspire to be either a physician assistant or a nurse practitioner,” he said.
The scholarship was awarded to Lane because of his demonstration of a strong work ethic, loyalty and leadership skills, character traits exemplified by Andrew Hendrix. Students in New Hanover County that demonstrate these characteristics and have worked in the restaurant industry, as Hendrix did, are strongly considered for the scholarship.
Dr. Robert Hendrix and Karen Bessey, the late Andrew Hendrix’s parents, founded the scholarship to honor Andrew Hendrix’s commitment and service to others. The family is from Rocky Mount, North Carolina.
