The Pasadena Independent School District Board of Trustees accepted the recommendation of the School Naming Committee to name the Park View area middle school after long-time board member, Marshall H. Kendrick.

A retired director and general manager of Maleic Anhydride Business for the Bayer Corporation, Kendrick has served on the Pasadena ISD board for 26 years. He holds a Bachelor’s degree from Stephen F. Austin University.

Kendrick is also a deacon, Sunday school teacher and member of the finance committee of South Main Baptist Church.

He and his wife, Denie, have two children, both graduates of Sam Rayburn High School. 

Dr. Kirk Lewis, superintendent of schools stated that “Naming schools and other buildings in Pasadena ISD is a meaningful symbol of recognition for those who have demonstrated their dedication and service as well as honoring their reputation and involvement in community affairs. Marshall Kendrick has certainly demonstrated a strong desire and intention to make a positive impact in the District and the community as well.”

Kendrick expresses humility in the honor of having a school named after him.

"I am very humbled by the recommendation to name the school after me," he said. "I've had the privilege of working with a wonderful group of folks on the board for years and this is a great honor.”
