CCCCD Board Names New Trustee

December 18 , 2002 - On December 17, the Collin County Community College District Board of Trustees officially appointed Mac Hendricks, a McKinney resident, to fill the Place 6 seat vacancy in its membership. The board seat was left vacant upon the sudden passing of Carey Cox, founding member of the CCCCD board of trustees and fellow McKinney resident. Hendricks will fill the seat for the remainder of Cox's term until that seat comes up for reelection in 2004.

Hendricks has been a McKinney resident for more than 30 years. From 1995 to 2002, he was a member and secretary/treasurer of the McKinney Economic Development Corporation. He has also been a member of the city's Planning and Zoning Commission and has sat on the Airport Advisory Board.

"One of the most wonderful things that ever happened to this county was the creation of the Collin County Community College District," said Hendricks. "It's been a wonderful thing for the county and it has helped many young people go to college who otherwise may not have gone."

"It makes me feel good that they would have the confidence to set me in [Carey Cox's] chair. There is no way that I could ever fill his shoes, but I look forward to making a contribution."

A certified public accountant, Hendricks is currently a real-estate consultant and investor with longtime ties to the area. Prior to stepping out on his own, Hendricks was president and CEO of a real-estate company involved in community developments throughout McKinney, Frisco and other nearby cities.

Hendricks received his BBA in accounting from the University of North Texas.

Asked about his goals on the board, Hendricks said, "Though being on a community college board is new to me, the business aspect of it is not. I hope to represent the people of Collin County well and to see that their tax money is spent wisely. Our goal is to get the most education for the money."

Sam Roach is chairman of the CCCCD Board of Trustees. In that capacity, he appointed the committee that reviewed all applicants.

"We are very excited to have Mac Hendricks as a member of this body," said Roach. "His business expertise, community involvement, and experience in public matters make him well suited to fill the seat of our departed member, Carey Cox. We are pleased to have him with us and look forward to his participation."
