Washington – October 1, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Senator Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, welcomed Utahn Carol Hollowell, the executive director of the Switchpoint Community Resource Center in St. George, in the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday afternoon as she completed a 3,760 mile bike ride across the country to raise awareness about homelessness and poverty.
“Carol is an incredible example of service, and the work she does makes St. George and all of Utah a better place,” Senator Hatch said. “Her impressive management skills have made Switchpoint into a unique, innovative resource center with powerful reach and vast potential to do good in the community. I commend her on her ride, and even more on her years of service to Utahns in need.”
