Hall-Dawson CASA board member receives state award

Chris Hollifield, board member with Hall-Dawson CASA for 16 years, has received the 2023 state CASA Board Member Leadership Award. He was presented with it at the recent Georgia CASA Conference in Atlanta.

“The reason I serve CASA is the impact that CASA makes in a child’s life,” Hollifield says. “We tell their story when no one will listen. In their world we are the adult in their corner who will speak up for their best interest. My wife and I once had an opportunity to foster two boys for a short time and I saw first-hand what some children have to go through and the difference a CASA can make.”

Hall-Dawson CASA Facebook posting says Hollifield’s “exceptional contributions and unwavering dedication” make him a model board member and “very deserving of the Georgia CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) Board Member Leadership Award.”
