    Barbara Hensley has been in the real estate business for over 30 years and was a huge part of the real estate explosion seen in Rockwall from the 1980′s to the present. She has served on many boards and community events, won may awards, and given back to the community in many ways. I believe she would be the perfect Person of the year foe 2010.
