Holley is a Professor of Political Science and Associate Dean of the Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts at CCU. She grew up in Sylacauga, Alabama (just southeast of Birmingham) and was raised in the Methodist Church. She has lived in Conway for 12 years, but still underestimates Horry County traffic! She and her husband, Dan (an English professor and national award-winning poet – really!), live in Conway with their schnauzer mix, Mindy.
From Holley: “An undergraduate professor of mine once wrote on one of my papers that I always ‘want things to turn out right,’ and that my primary goal seemed to be parsing different viewpoints in order to find my way to consensus or reconciliation. I took it as a compliment, and it is the gift I would hope to bring to the Mission Committee. I feel blessed to have found St. Anne’s and appreciate to the opportunity to serve our special community.”
