Jerry and Jean Hendrickson

Jerry and Jean Hendrickson

Asotin native, Jerry Hendrickson and his wife, Jean, have been selected as the Grand Marshall for the 2018 Asotin County Fair & Hells Canyon Rodeo. Jerry's grandparents homesteaded on Montgomery Ridge, and he and his parents. Carl and Jo Hendrickson, lived at Rocky Hollow on the Asotin flat. After graduating from the Anatone School and obtaining a teaching degree from Central Washington University, he taught in Wasilla, AK for seven years. After teaching in Olympia, WA for 25 years, he and Jean moved back to Asotin County in 1994. They reside on the Snake River ten miles south of Asotin. They have a son living in Olympia and a daughter residing in Clarkston.

Jerry has been no stranger to the Asotin County Fair. He was a Fair Board Treasurer for serveral years. If he isn't manning the Master Gardener booth (specialty roses), he can be found giving out information at the Asotin County Noxious Weed booth. He has been a member of the Asotin County Cattleman for many years and worked in the Cattlemen's food booth last year. He has been a supporter of the county 4-H program and has judged the 4-H demonstrations for many years. He really enjoys judging the apple pie contests. Jerry is a memeber of the Asotin County Conservation District, the museum, and the Asotin United Methodist Church whose members keep the grounds clean at the fair.

Jean has been the president of the Asotin County CattleWomen and helped with the fair BBW. Last year, she co-chaired the Methodist Church food booth. She enjoys assisting the judges in the open class clothing and crafts department.

Both Hendricksons are looking forward to the 2018 Fair & Rodeo activities.
