Rod Kendig, WFPL Board of Governance

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of Rod Kendig, Chairman of the WFPL Board of Governance. Under Rod’s leadershipthe library made numerous advances in a short period of time. His ability to bring people together in support of a common cause, 
the clarity he brought to issues, his warm personality, and his great intelligence will be missed. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Information on services will be provided as they become available. More about Rod Kendig’s accomplishments can be found here: http://www.pnj.com/article/20140203/NEWS01/302030007/Rod-Kendig-left-his-mark-on-Pensacola-community 

Cathy Ingram, our neighbor in Heron's Forest and librarian at our branch library said "We have lost a major force in the WFPL 
system as well as a kind, caring and funny man."
