A Personal Glimpse

Family man. That's a very apt descriptor for Chris Hollifield. Between family time and community service, he gets pretty busy during off hours. So if he's able to squeeze in a little time for personal pursuits, he is always up for a hunting trip or just enjoying NASCAR or UGA football. Whether it's his daughters' soccer and basketball games, family camping trips or his volunteer time with CASA, Chris' most important investment is in family. When he's not here at Rushton, he's often hands-on in the family vegetable garden or planning a family outing.
