Owen D. Young Central School District Board of Education Vice President Holly Pullis is also now the newest member of the Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES Board of Education.
Herkimer BOCES board members voted unanimously on Thursday, Oct. 14, to appoint Pullis to fill a vacant seat representing Owen D. Young on the Herkimer BOCES board. Pullis took the seat effective the day she was appointed through June 30, 2022. Pullis fills the seat on the Herkimer BOCES Board of Education previously held by Linda Tharp, who passed away earlier this year.
Pullis has served on the Owen D. Young Board of Education for six years and was recently re-elected for three more years. Pullis believes the success of a school depends on the board, administration and staff having a good working relationship, and she has focused on a variety of areas including the educational environment, course offerings, financial responsibility and extracurricular activities.
Pullis and her husband, Jason, have two sons who are currently students at Owen D. Young. She owns and operates Hollywood Enterprises, a business she started in her youth, which raises and sells turkeys for Thanksgiving and as meat throughout the year. She is also involved in the Pullis family's Roedale Farm, a diversifying dairy and crop farm with a newly opened farm market and corn maze. She works part-time for a local attorney/certified public accountant and is an independent sales consultant. She is an active volunteer with 4-H, her church and her boys' school activities.
