Meet Jean Holloway

Jean Holloway

SERCAP exists to serve. Yes, in a very literal sense, we provide resources to our clients, but in a broader sense, we are here to support communities and individuals. This eye towards advocacy on behalf of those without a basic necessity is what sets SERCAP apart, and what makes our mission so special. We look for employees who reflect our same sense of duty: Jean Holloway is a great example.

Did you know that Americans in some parts of the country still don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water? This may come as a shock. Some of us often take clean water for granted, not realizing that for others this is a harsh reality. At SERCAP, we are working to change that.

Reasons Rural America is Great

Here at SERCAP we are champions for rural America. With natural beauty, lush mountains, and abundant farmland, it’s no surprise that many of us choose to call these places home.

A Client Story: Safe, Dry, and Warm Housing

It is hard for some to believe that this is a reality for others, as the natural resource of water is something we come to expect and often take for granted.

Water System Support at the North Carolina Cherokee Reservation

Cherokee-Reservation

We love that our role in supporting rural communities allows us the opportunity to work with people of all different walks of life, and cultures. The 4th Quarter SERCAP Native American Water Masters Association (NAWMA) meeting was held at the Annual Summer Festival and Pow Wow on the Cherokee Reservation in North Carolina. This was the first SERCAP NAWMA meeting outside of South Carolina and allowed SERCAP the opportunity to introduce the NAWMA to other tribes. Our team had the opportunity to discuss SERCAP, and our services, with a group of Native American personnel that are involved in the business of delivering a potable water supply to the Cherokee Reservation and many of the surrounding communities.
