I am Evan "H" Hendrix, principal/5-8 grade teacher here at PAS. With 28 years of teaching and administrative experience, I am very excited about the future of PAS!
Let's find out a little bit more about me. I was a 26 year career missionary in Asia and the Central Pacific Islands. I've also taught here in the US. I very much enjoy reading, photography, exercising with my wife, and being out in nature.
On the academic side, I am the biggest fan of my students when they "get it". I am overjoyed when they include me as a mentor-guide in formulating their future ambition and dreams. I am totally beside myself when their ambition begins to form in their minds as a "calling". I've had the profound privilege of witnessing this transformation with eighth graders before graduation!
Lastly, my welcoming story would not be complete without mentioning seeing students decide that they want to give their lives to Jesus as their personal Savior. Yes, I believe eternal education is important.
As you surf through our site and perceive how unique we are, I also hope you see that our commitment is to serve a loving God and our students are the recipients of His affection every single day. My hope is that our students are well prepared citizens on earth, but absolute citizens of heaven!
To advocate leadership cultivation, community service, high MAP ranking, and most importantly knowledge of God the Creator through nature and revelation, with the goal of complete acceptance of Jesus Christ.
By developing, strengthening, and utilizing the school, home, and church partnership for supporting student achievement and growth, PAS aims to glorify God, serve man, and be conservators of His created works.
