Hice Headliner Jamie Scott & Congressman Jody Hice 
On Friday, November 12, 2021, Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) presented the Hice Headliner Award for the month of November to Jamie Scott, Executive Director of the Sparrow’s Nest in Athens. The Sparrow’s Nest is a nonprofit organization that provides food, laundry and shower services, clothing distribution, social services, and computer access to impoverished members of the community. Jamie and his staff have connected several individuals who were experiencing issues with federal agencies to Congressman Hice’s office for assistance. Most recently, Jamie reconnected the Office with a homeless constituent whom Rep. Hice was helping to navigate Social Security.

“My office had tried on several occasions to unsuccessfully reach a homeless constituent by phone and email,” said Congressman Hice. “Then, we contacted Jamie, who informed us that the person hadn’t returned to the Sparrow’s Nest. Nevertheless a few hours later, my casework manager received a call from Jamie with the constituent by his side. He had taken it upon himself to drive around town and locate the person at a homeless camp. This is truly a touching example of the amazing work that Jamie and the entire team at the Sparrow’s Nest provide. Thank you, Jamie, for going the extra mile to ‘love your neighbor as yourself!’”

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Please know that I cannot force an agency to act in favor of a constituent. However, I can help communicate the circumstances and request that they take appropriate actions to assist you.
