Barb Hendricks began her association with SRA in 2002 after being inspired by her daughter’s friend who came from a challenging childhood background and who desperately wanted to go to college. This bright and motivated young man received an SRA scholarship, which sparked Barb’s involvement in the organization. Aided by a group of dedicated volunteers, Barb and Lynne Martin transitioned SRA from a KRON 4 project into the thriving, independent nonprofit organization that it is today. Barb served as the President of the Board of Directors of SRA for three years, and in 2006 she assumed the role of Director of Student Programs. Barb earned her Bachelor’s degree in Political Economy from UC Berkeley before launching a successful career in the insurance industry.
