O.E. "PETE" HENDRICKS
O. E. "Pete" Hendricks was bom May 20, 1921 in Dubach, Louisiana to Sadie Valentine Miller Hendricks and O. E. Hendricks, Sr. He grew up in Leesville and Ruston, Louisiana. He attended Louisiana Tech University in Ruston where he played varsity basketball and baseball. At Tech, he met and courted Marion Watson, who was the love of
his life. After his graduation, Pete and Marion married on September 27, 1942 and moved to Leesville, Louisiana.
After World War II, Pete and his wife and 2 daughters, Lillian and Judy, moved to Mexico City, where he coached football and taught at the American School. In the early 50,s, the filmily, now with the addition of 3rd daughter Susie, moved to the Texas Rio Grande Valley where Pete served as a teacher and school administrator in several communities, and where 4th daughter Lynette was bom. In 1964, with 2 daughters in college and 2 at home, the Hendricks, moved to Corsicana. Finally, in 1966, Pete and Marion settled in New Braunfels where he served as NBISD superintendent for the next 17 years. After retirement, he was associated with New Braunfels National Bank (now Wells Fargo).
Pete was active in many civic and professional organizations. A lifelong Methodist, he served the church in every way he was asked - from Sunday School teacher to usher to Finance Committee Chair to lily Leader. He was a member of the Masonic lodge for more than 50 years. Pete was a proud Rotarian: past president of 2 clubs and a past District Governor of Rotary International. He maintained over 43 years of perfect attendance at meetings and was a Paul Harris Fellow.
He was Past President of Texas State leachers Association District 13 and Past President of the Texas Association of School Administrators. I Ie received the Silver Unicorn Award for service to the students of New Braunfels ISD and was a life member of the PIA

While he had many professional accomplishments and community awards, Pete was proudest of his family - his 62 years of marriage to Marion
and their four educated, productive, and opinionated daughters with families of their own. He had some of the qualities that the best fathers possess: selective hearing, a lack of surprise at anything, good or bad, his kids would do, and the unerring sense that they would turn out all right if you just kept grounding them.
Pete Hendricks loved good food, a good card game, and a good joke. He loved playing golf (he scored 2 holes in one-25 years apart) and drinking coffee with his friends. He made the tastiest peanut brittle, the best grilled cheese sandwiches, and was a connoisseur of breakfast burritos and chicken fried steak. On holidays, he was the master turkey carver and could always be counted on to sneak a choice piece of meat to his kids.
Pete is survived by his wife, Marion and by daughters ITI-lian jones of Altadena, California; Judy Henderson of Houston, Texas; Susie Adams and her husband Gerald of Austin, I texas; and Lynette Hendricks and her husband Bruce Kaluza of Coppell, Texas. He is also survived by 7 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
Pete’s earthly heart may have stopped, but, if you look, you can Find pieces of it all around you. He gave his heart to his family, his friends and his community. You can see it in his children, his church, Hope Hospice, the Rotary Club, and many other places in town.
Hie family wishes to thank Dr. Frank Rubalcava. Dr. Ed Gutierrez, Dr. William Reeves, and the outstanding staff of McKenna Memorial Hospital for their care, concern, and professionalism.
Services will be held 2 pm Friday, May 27 at First United Methodist Church of New Braunfels. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made to the charity of your choice.

District waiting to see what lawmakers do
“They don’t care what you’ve already done,” said CISD Business Manager Debra Smith. “If the state says we have to give $1,500, it would be over and above what we’ve already decided we can afford to give.”
Director of Personnel Peggy Fuller said the experience was agonizing for everyone.
“There are those who want to know what they will be making next year, or who want to compare what we are offering to other districts,” she said.
“Right now, all they can compare is this year’s salary schedules.”
Although they are frustrated with waiting, Fuller said CISD teachers could take comfort in knowing they were not the only ones on hold.
“I know of only two districts in the entire state who have set their salary schedules,” she said. "We’re all in the same boat.”
With less than a week left in the legislative session, Fuller is keeping her fingers crossed legislators can make up their minds without calling a special session during the summer.
“It’s all speculation at this point, but we are hoping we will have enough information to make a decision by June,” she said.
The legislative session is scheduled to end Monday and Gov. Rick Perry has said he will not call a spe-
