Cindy Holladay Retires From Clerk and Master’s Office

Posted

HUNTINGDON (March 2) — A parade, a giant American flag hoisted on the ladder of Huntingdon Fire Department ladder truck, and gifts were the fare of the day for Cindy Holladay, the longest-serving employee of the County of Carroll, who retired recently. Huntingdon Mayor Dale Kelley represented a resolution naming the day as Cindy Holladay Day in Huntingdon.

The parade was a drive-by event as Cindy positioned herself outside the east side of the courthouse and waved to passing associates and friends.

Holladay started as a service in the Clerk and Master’s office in 1976 fresh out of high school.

She was 18 years old and started to work in the office on a summer grant and never left the position. She leaves with 44 years of service to the county and lots of memories.

She served as a deputy clerk for three clerks and masters - Ida Crider Mebane, Bill McConnell and Kenneth Todd, and six chancellors - Aaron Brown, Walton West, Ron Harmon, Carma McGee, Jennifer King and Vicki Hoover.

The Clerk and Master’s Office, located in the downtown courthouse, mainly serves as a court of civil matters. Probating estates, divorces and delinquent tax sales are some of the major cases that come through the court. Holladay said her favorite cases were those involving child adoptions. Everyone generally leaves happy.

She said she hopes to travel with her family, as soon as the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. She will also continue her treatments for cancer, which weighed heavily in her decision to retire.
