A Personal Glimpse

Family man. That's a very apt descriptor for Chris Hollifield. Between family time and community service, he stays pretty busy during off hours. So if he's able to squeeze in a little time for personal pursuits, he is always up for anything outdoors, including hunting, fishing, BBQ smoking and UGA sports. Whether it's his daughters' 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.


Chris’s community involvement includes being active in Georgia Mountains YMCA.

Family time for Chris includes his daughters' soccer and basketball games, along with camping and vegetable gardening. He's also a fan of NASCAR and UGA football.
