Lindsey

 

John Garrison served as the Dean of Students at Texas State University for over 30 years, where he championed several initiatives including the creation of Student Foundation, the name change from Southwest Texas to Texas State, and the push for Texas State to move to Division I (FBS) football.

The John Garrison Leadership Award was created to honor a student leader at Texas State who exhibits the honor, leadership, sacrifice and courage that characterized Dr. Garrison’s legacy; and the young lady selected as this year’s recipient certainly left her mark at Texas State.

Throughout her college career, Lindsey Hendrix served as a President of the Panhellenic Council, Vice President of Administration for Student Foundation, and the Executive Assistant for the Texas State Associated Student Government. As a student leader, one of Lindsey’s proudest moments was serving as Panhellenic President when her council laid the foundation to expand the Greek system with the addition of a new sorority on campus – Gamma Phi Beta.

Lindsey graduated this May with her Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Disorders and plans on furthering her education by becoming proficient in another language; “Being bilingual is a real advantage and broadens the number of lives I can touch.  I will use this scholarship money to pursue international course work and engage in teaching techniques and interventions that will serve Spanish speaking populations.”

Hendrix says the qualities that helped her achieve success in college were integrity and passion: “I believe that integrity and passion are two of the most important qualities for success.  Integrity should be seen and passion must be felt.”

We were proud to have Lindsey as a student in the inaugural Housley Principled Leadership Program and congratulate her graduation and selection as the 2013 John Garrison Leadership Award winner.
