Leadership

Sandy Hollinger

At Large

Sandy Fretwell Hollinger was elected to the Tribal Council in 2011. Prior to being elected, Hollinger served as a Community Services Specialist in the Family Services Department (FSD) fo Tribal government. In that role, she helped families resolve crisis situations, provided child care assistance, and planned activities for our Tribal children. Ultimately, through her work in the FSD and the love for her people, she followed her heart to serve her fellow Tribal Citizens. Her desire to be a positive voice for the Tribe inspired her decision to run for Tribal Council. Sandy considers it an honor and a privilege to serve on the Tribal Council and truly desires to see everyone prosper.

She currently serves on the Cultural Authority and Education and Labor, Housing and Community Activities, and  Legislative Committees of the Tribal Council. She has also served on the TERO Commission, The Boys and Girls Club board, and Legislative Affairs Committee. While the Tribe already operates a variety of economic enterprises, which employ many Tribal Citizens as well as hundreds of area residents, she is excited about being a part of new developments the Tribal Council is now actively planning. She appreciates how the Tribe’s sustained growth preserves the work of past Tribal leaders who achieved Federal recognition. She wants to thank the many who came before her who have helped make the Tribe what it is today. Sandy realizes she is only one vote, but wants her vote to count for the Tribe as a whole and to benefit all Tribal Citizens.

Sandy Fretwell Hollinger is married to Darrell Hollinger and has three beautiful children Austin, Denver, and Anna Grace. She is the daughter of Ruth McGhee Bailey, the late William Fretwell, and the step daughter of the late Jerry Bailey. Her grandparents were the late Gracie Mae Spence, Greely and Alberta McGhee, and Will and Lavada Fretwell. She is the daughter-in-law of Alex (Buster) and Yvonne Hollinger, the late Patricia Woods Hollinger. She grew up in the Poarch community and now lives in Monroe County, Alabama.
