A Jewel Retires from CEJHendrix Photo 3.2

It is bittersweet that we announce the retirement of Ms. Jewell “Judy” Hendrix, executive assistant to the director and an all-around amazing woman, effective Aug. 1. Over the past 30 years with the Division of Continuing Education (41 with the University), she has positively impacted countless lives—student, instructor and coworker alike. 

Whether working with the National Youth-At-Risk Conference, the Governor’s Conference and Model UN, among others, her favorite part of work has always been the people that she’s met along the way. “[It’s] the clients you get to work with, the partnerships and friendships you form,” Hendrix said. “As the years have passed, you see their families grow and change and you celebrate the happy times and mourn the sad times. I always enjoy the feeling of knowing that I have done my best and when a customer walks away with a smile on their face.”
