2016 Madison House Volunteer of the Year

Madison House named Holly Brooks as its 2016 Volunteer of the Year this past spring. Holly is a rising third-year student from Atlanta, pursuing an Echols Interdisciplinary Major in Sustainable Agriculture. She has volunteered with AHIP - Home Repair Nonprofit and The Haven's Housing2Home initiative, both through the Housing Improvement program at Madison House. This fall, Holly will serve as a Program Director for Housing Improvement.

Holly says, "Volunteering with Madison House is important to me because it allows me to give back to a community that is so generous to UVA students."

Holly is also meaningfully involved other activities around Grounds. She volunteers weekly with Morven Kitchen Garden at the University of Virginia, and this fall she will act as their student beekeeping leader. She is also an active member of First Year Players and sings with one of UVA's jazz combos.

Congratulations, Holly, and thank you for everything you do!
