Standout senior John Hendricks of LCHS found deceased

Russellville attorney Joe Hendricks has announced today’s death of his son, Logan County High School senior John Hendricks, saying, “It appears that he died on a self-inflicted gunshot wound. We don’t have a lot of answers.” His mother, Kaye Hendricks, is a Central Office Administrator with Logan County Schools. John Hendricks was one of the most outstanding students in the history of LCHS. This year his achievements have included being named the state winner of the Wendy’s Heisman Award, placing at state in cross country running, starting a Junior Optimist Club, and being chosen Homecoming King. He was a Governor’s Scholar. His death affected the school so much that tonight’s scheduled district basketball doubleheader at Todd Central has been postponed. Funeral arrangements are incomplete at Summers, Kirby & Sanders Funeral Home.
