Holly Hendrix, a fourth-year architecture honors student at the University of Memphis,
has been recognized for her research in the Department of Architecture with community
partners Millington Community Court Services and the Town of Millington. Her research
was supported by a Strengthening Communities Grant.
Hendrix was one of only six students selected from the University to participate in
“Posters at the Capitol” in Nashville on Feb. 11, 2010. She will present her research
on the “Old Town Millington Vision Plan” to Tennessee state legislators and their
staffs. The “Posters at the Capitol” program is an opportunity for legislators to
see the types of undergraduate research being done in Tennessee.
Hendrix also was selected by the U of M’s Helen Hardin Honors Program to present her
work at the Tennessee Collegiate Honors Council Conference on Feb. 12-13. This statewide
conference features the top undergraduate researchers from all the honors programs
in Tennessee. (The University of Memphis will host the conference for the first time
in 10 years.)
“Through her hard work and commitment, Holly continues to bring recognition to the
Department of Architecture and is helping to further our mission and the mission of
the University through engaged scholarship,” said Michael Hagge, associate professor
and chairman of the department.
A graduate of St. Mary’s Episcopal School, she is the daughter of Mary and Terry Hendrix
