Leta Stroud has built a following of Christian music lovers from her Conway home, and now Conway will be honoring her.
Thursday, Aug. 30, will be known as "Leta Stroud Day" after Conway Mayor Tab Townsell declares it through proclamation. Townsell will make the declaration Thursday at 3 p.m. at his office.
Stroud is a member of the Country Gospel Music Hall of Fame, and she has recorded more than 10 albums, her most recent being "The Great Starmaker" with all songs written by Stroud. She has toured the country with her husband, Dr. Warren W. Stroud, sometimes for more than 300 days a year.
In addition to being in the Hall of Fame, Stroud won the Songwriter of the Year Award from the Country Gospel Music Guild.
She is a mother of five and grandmother of six.
"I give [Jesus] all the glory, honor, and praise for all He has done and is doing in my life," Stroud said.
