Thomas H. (Tommy) Holland, Jr. has announced he is seeking re-election to his seat on the Fayetteville

Board of Education in the Nov. 3 City elections. “We’ve just got to remember everything is about the children,” said Holland, a Fayetteville native. “The City School System offers our young people the best

teachers and best teaching facilities that we can. I’m proud of what we have accomplished in the Fayetteville City Schools; and under the direction of the new Director of City Schools Dr. Bill Hopkins, I

feel confident we can and will continue to provide our young people with the best education possible.”

First elected to the City school board in 2004, Holland also serves as a member of the Fayetteville

Housing Authority’s board of directors. He is a past member of the Fayetteville Parks and Recreation board of directors, having served on it from 1982 to 2008, and a past member of the policy council with South Central Human Resource Agency’s Head Start/early Head Start programs. He has also served as past president of the Tennessee Bankers Association’s Young Bankers Division.

After 48 years in banking, Holland retired as vice president and branch manager with First National Bank. In addition to an extensive background in banking, Holland is active in the community, having served as a member of the Fayetteville Lions Club for more than 30 years, a past president of the Fayetteville/Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce, and served on various committees working to benefit such efforts as the cancer society and heart association.

He and his wife, Kathy, a retired teacher in the City school system, attend the First Baptist Church of

Fayetteville. They have four children and ten grandchildren. “I would very much appreciate your vote on Nov. 3 and look forward to serving the citizens of Fayetteville for four more years.”
