Wayne Kerr ---- Wayne Kerr is a long-time dentist and community volunteer in Rockdale County. His father is the late Joseph Chester Kerr Jr., who served in the U.S. Navy during WWII. He also worked as a contract manager for Martin Marietta, and in Florida served as an attorney, a Juvenile Court judge and Superior Court judge. ---- Kerr said his father ran his courtroom like an efficient business, and that he often chided both children and parents in his courtroom for their behavior, said Kerr. ---- "He would scare the slop out of these people. He didn't have any repeat offenders," joked Kerr. ---- Words of wisdom from his father remain with Kerr daily. "'Personal integrity, professional integrity -- success demands both.' I have that on my wall in my study," said Kerr. "He was a man of phenomenal integrity, and I honor him to this day for his industry, his integrity and his service."
