Tanya Hollingsworth, an honors student at East Peoria Community High School, graduated in 1985 with a class ranking of 13 out of 487. A member of the National Honor Society and a recipient of both the Sterling Merit Award and the President’s Academic Fitness Award, she also served as class Vice-President four years and was an editor on the school newspaper. Though Tanya dedicated her four years to receiving the best education possible, she was named “Class Clown” her senior year.

After graduation, she accepted a scholarship to study Business Management at a college close to home. Throughout high school and college Tanya worked as a manager at a fast food restaurant, and the experience gained in the service industry provided an excellent foundation for her future career. In October of 1987 she interviewed for and accepted a position as a sales representative at Royal Publishing. Less than two years later, Tanya was promoted to Training Manager, then Director of Sales, and most recently she became the General Manager, overseeing sales and operations, not only at the home office but in each of our branch offices. Her knowledge of high school sports, and the relationships she has not only with the individual schools but also many

State Associations around the country, have proven invaluable. Under her leadership, Royal

Publishing has produced State Tournament Playoff programs and in some cases State

Championship programs for High School State Athletic Associations in Arizona, Colorado,

Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. For over 35 years she has been a key member of the company’s management staff, and her dedication to the schools and other organizations serviced by Royal Publishing is evident.

Tanya has been married to her husband Chip since 1988 and is the mother of two. Her daughter Brooke, a four–year volleyball and track and field athlete at Metamora Township High School, served for six years as a Seabee in the United States Navy alongside her husband Jake (an eight year veteran). They and their son (Colt) and daughter (Kinslee), recently moved to Florida. Tanya’s son Brody, lifetime baseball athlete and graduate of MTHS, returned to make Central Illinois his home after serving our country for four years in the United States Marine Corps. His wife, Beth, a Bradley University graduate, and their son, Jaxson, currently reside in Beth’s home town of Washington, IL.

Tanya is an avid sports fan, cheering loudly for the Cincinnati Reds, Bradley University and Ohio State University, while always making time to follow high school athletics. Balancing out her active professional career, she prioritizes spending time with her family and her enjoyment of travelling—most times with a sporting event as the main focus!
