The Wayne Hendry Scholarship Fund

Wayne Hendry was integral to life at St. Joseph's Elementary School in Victoria, where he worked as Custodian for 27 years. After his retirement, he returned to the school to read to the young students, a highlight of his week.

Surrounded by his family's love, Wayne passed away on June 12, 2015, after nine weeks in Victoria Hospice. The Wayne Hendry Scholarship has been established by the school to be awarded to the student who exemplifies the essence of Wayne Hendry: kindness, forgiveness, dedication, respect and commitment.
