Holly Grange to Be Sworn-In as New House Member

WILMINGTON, NC – Holly Grange will be sworn-in Friday, September 2nd at 11:30am in the mall at the New Hanover County Government Center on Government Center Drive.

The brief ceremony will be her public swearing-in as she was officially sworn-in Tuesday in Raleigh so that she could participate in a GOP House Caucus meeting.

Holly won her Primary election in March and faces no opposition in this November’s General election. Representative Rick Catlin did not run for re-election and resigned from the House last week in order to devote full time to his business.

Governor McCrory appointed Ms. Grange on Monday of this week after receiving the unanimous recommendation from the New Hanover County GOP Executive Committee last Thursday.

“I am excited to get a head start on representing House District 20 in the North Carolina Legislature. I have hit the ground running and have already attended my 1st GOP Caucus meeting. There is much to learn and I am grateful to other legislators who have reached out to help.” Holly proclaimed.

Holly Grange currently serves as the Director of Community Relations at Osprey Global Solutions, a Wilmington company specializing in global, full-spectrum life-support medical, logistics and construction, as well as security, training and business intelligence services. She is also a Realtor affiliated with Century 21 Sweyer and Associates. Prior to returning to North Carolina in 2009, she served as an attorney at Huck Bouma, PC in Wheaton, Illinois. Holly is 15 year US Army Veteran, serving on active duty and in the reserves as an officer in the US Army Corp of Engineers.

Ms. Grange was appointed to the Board of Directors of the North Carolina Ports Authority in 2014 and served until August of 2017. She serves as the Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees of Coastal Horizons Center, Inc., the Board of Directors of the Cape Fear Community College Foundation, and serves on the Advisory Board for the Swain Center for Business and Economics at UNCW. She is a former member of the Board of Directors of the USO of North Carolina.

Ms. Grange earned her Bachelor of Science degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point, a Master of Science in Systems Management from the University of Southern California, and a Juris Doctor from Northern Illinois University College of Law. She is a member of the Illinois Bar.

Ms. Grange is an NRA pistol and rifle instructor and is a North Carolina concealed carry instructor.
