Assignment Fox Cities

     Hugh Holly of Appleton had struggled with alcohol abuse for several
years, but that's in his past.  Now Holly can boast of four decades of
absolute sobriety.
     Holly grew-up in Pennsylvania, enrolled at Lawrence University,
planning a career in medicine.  But bars along College Avenue were a
distraction.  He left the university after a few semesters.
     Because he had roots in Waupaca, Wisconsin, Holly moved to a cottage
and became what he calls "a grease monkey."    Finally admitting he had
a problem, Holly called a "hotline," seeking help for the addiction.
     The help came, along with a new job opportunity, as an alcohol and
drug counselor, first of all for Waupaca county.  That training catapulted
Holly into his current position; executive director of Nova Counseling
Services in Oshkosh.
     Hear Holly's heart-warming story on Assignment Fox Cities.  You'll
find it on our website, whby.com, under Audio Vault.
