LeRoy Hendricks is seeking election to the county office of JP district 7.
The Hendricks family moved to to Faulkner County in 1994, a very happy return to family roots for his wife, Frances, who spent several weeks here each year as she was growing up. His interest in historic preservation was heightened with the renovation of the family home built in 1925 by G. L. Bahner, his wife’s paternal grandfather, on Robinson Ave. Her maternal grandfather, Dr. E. P. J. Garrott, was pastor of First Baptist Church in Conway for many years.
Frances and LeRoy Hendricks have three children. Their youngest daughter is a graduate of Conway High School and Hendrix College. A son-in-law is a graduate of UCA.
Mr. Hendricks has served two terms on the Conway Historic District Commission and is treasurer of the Old Conway Preservation Society. He is also a member of the Conway Rotary Club and serves as treasurer of his church.
A retired computer software/systems engineer, LeRoy worked for Acxiom Corporation and IBM. Before coming to Conway he worked two years in the banking industry. Earlier work experience included hydrology research with the U. S. Geological Survey in water resources. He holds a degree from Ga. Tech and a Master’s degree from Va. Tech.
While an IBM Systems Engineer LeRoy worked with a wide variety of businesses and industries. He believes that this background, as well as his experience in IBM product development, hydrology, and fund-based financial systems, will be strong assets in serving as a JP. Current challenges to the county include issues in all of these areas. Being retired makes him available for the time required to help find solutions to these problems.
LeRoy Hendricks feels strongly that serving as a Justice in district 7 will provide an opportunity for giving back to a community about which he cares deeply.
