“It’s an honor to be asked to serve our community as a member of the York County Commission for Technical Education,” said Holladay. “One of my passions is enabling people to better themselves by realizing their own potential. Continuous education is one of the greatest ways for someone to do just that. I look forward to helping York Tech fulfill their mission of building our community through maximizing student success in whatever way I can.”
Holladay earned a Master of Business Administration from Winthrop College (now University) and a Bachelor of Science in mathematics with a minor in computer science from Presbyterian College.
