Catherine C. Grant, one of the founding partners of The Urgent Care Center of Richmond Hill, recently was selected to join the board of the Richmond Hill-Bryan County Chamber of Commerce.
“We really think that Catherine will be a great addition to the board,” Chamber Executive Director Brianne Yontz said. “We’re thrilled to have her.”
The Chamber board consists of 16-17 members, with each member serving no more than three consecutive three-year terms. When a seat becomes vacant, the Chamber requests nominees for a new appointee. A nominating committee then reviews the full list of candidates, selects its top picks, and then presents that list to the full Chamber board for the final vote. The process usually takes two months from start to finish.
“Our goal is to assemble a diverse mix of members from various business backgrounds who not only look at things differently, but bring different skill sets as well,” Yontz said.
A Savannah native, Grant made Richmond Hill her home nearly 10 years ago. She earned her Bachelor of Science in physician-assistant studies from South University and her Master of Science in physician-assistant studies from the Medical University of South Carolina. Grant completed her emergency medicine training at Grady Hospital in Atlanta, with additional training at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, and Emory Crawford-Long in Atlanta.
Grant and her husband, Richmond Hill native Scott Grant, have two daughters, Grayson and Madison.
“We’re fortunate that we have people who want to serve on the Chamber board and a variety of boards in the community,” Yontz said. “Serving in this capacity takes time away from members’ businesses and their families, and that level of dedication does not go unnoticed.”
The Urgent Care Center was named the Richmond Hill/ Bryan County Chamber Business of the Year in 2013.
