Hendrix Heating & Air Conditioning has been a part of the Corvallis and surrounding community for over 60 years. Roger Kaminga started out as a service tech with the company in 1994, then after a back injury transitioned into sales, and now together with his wife Carla, has owned the business since 2008. It’s important to them that the culture of the company be one of a family atmosphere where the needs of each employee are just as important as the overall operation. Hendrix Heating takes care of homes and small businesses, many of which have been with the company since the beginning. With a commitment to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” Luke 6:31, the team at Hendrix works hard to do the right thing every time.
In an effort to give back to the community and to the thousands of customers who allow them into their homes and businesses every year, Hendrix Heating set up this scholarship for a deserving high school senior. Whether it’s pursuing a career in the trades or a program offered at one of our local community colleges, this is an important step in one’s life, and Hendrix Heating & Air Conditioning is happy to help.
