Hence retired as Executive Vice President of Forsyth Technical Community College in 2010, after serving 36 years in higher education. Born in Jackson, Michigan, Dr. Hence was raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He began his career in New Jersey and served as vice president or dean at colleges in Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania and Maryland before coming to North Carolina. After dropping out of high school in the 11th grade, he joined the U.S. Army where he served for seven years specializing in radar and computer repair. After his discharge from the Army, he did stints as a salesman, auto mechanic, electronics technician and part-time musician to support his family. He once played at the famed Apollo theatre behind legendary blues singer Al Green, early in his career. While attending college at night, he was one of nine people selected from across the United States to receive a Graduate Fellowship to the Rutgers University Graduate School of Education without having a baccalaureate degree -- based on life experience. He holds masters and doctoral degrees in education from Rutgers University. Dr. Hence is also an ordained minister and serves at First Baptist Church in King. His hobbies include boating, music and writing screenplays. He has been taking pictures since the eighth grade when his mom gave him an old Polaroid camera. His photographic interests have been shaped by his life experiences. While he has “bags and albums” full of pictures from the “pre-digital” era, his photographic interests for the past several years have included landscape, a growing civil rights and historic sites collection, classic cars and people. He occasionally photographs weddings and special events. Since retiring, however he has devoted much more of his time and energy to photography, with one of his pictures having won first place and judges’ choice at the Dixie Classic Fair. Dr. Hence is a juried member of the Winston-Salem Craft Guild and an associate member of The Associated Artists of Winton-Salem. During the month of February 2011, his work was exhibited in the “Apple Gallery” of the Stokes County Arts Council. Dr. Hence and his wife, Anna, whose decorative wreaths have also won first and second place prizes at the Dixie Classic Fair, enjoy participating in arts and craft shows in the region. They reside in King, NC.
