Martin Hendrix, Director of Special Education for Scott County Schools, will retire effective July 1, 2017 after 29 years in education. Hendrix served as a school psychologist at Garth, Eastern, and Scott County Middle School for 10 years before being named director. Prior to his career with Scott County Schools, Hendrix worked in a forensic neuropsychiatric practice.
Hendrix is passionate about working with others to better the lives of students. Special education teacher Jennifer Caudill has worked with Hendrix for 12 years. “Martin Hendrix is a true advocate for children with disabilities and for the teachers who work with these children, " Caudill commented. "He ensures that special educators in Scott County have the resources, training, and support needed so that all children can learn at high levels each and every day."
Education was a natural choice for Hendrix, who comes from a long line of teachers and administrators. His mother retired after 40 years of teaching. His father, both aunts, both grandmothers, and a grandfather were all educators. His sister is also a teacher.
During retirement, Hendrix plans to dedicate himself to the renovation of his historic home. He looks forward to traveling and spending time with family.
