Holly Gardner Wins Jon Richards Award

The Georgia Young Republicans (GYR) hosted their 2019 GYR Awards Party at Winston’s Wine Cellar this past weekend in Savannah. The event included participants from all around Georgia.

As part of the event, Holly Gardner was recognized with the Jon Richards Award for her continued support of Young Republicans. Jon was a tremendous supporter of Young Republicans and the award was created in his honor.

Chairman Colt Chambers:

“Holly has been a great supporter of the Young Republicans organization. She is a lifetime member of the Atlanta Young Republicans. Much like Jon, Holly can be found at events across the Metro area and throughout the state supporting the efforts of youth in our party. She has been a mentor to not only myself but others in our organization. Her passion for what we’re doing is obvious to anyone who meets her. I am thrilled to announce that she has agreed to serve as an honorary chair of our upcoming Young Republican Women’s Leadership Conference.”

Holly Gardner:

“Thank you Georgia Young Republicans for honoring me with the Jon Richards Award.  Jon’s most lasting achievement was his mentorship of dozens of young people interested in politics.  I am truly overwhelmed.”
