Regions Honors Tanya Bonham Scott with October Better Life Award

Former Kansas Jayhawk brings lessons from the hardwood to her branch and local youth.

Tanya Bonham Scott is an expert at scoring. She not only knows how to achieve goals, but she’s been known to score a goal or two. The former collegiate shooting guard-turned school teacher-turned banker has the mindset of a team captain as she daily rallies her team to help customers achieve financial wins.


Tanya is a top scorer in her community, too. She volunteers weekly as a mentor for Lessons for Life, a group devoted to providing real-life examples for young girls striving for success. Regions is donating $1,000 to the organization on Tanya’s behalf.

Tanya plays many roles at Regions, for causes dear to her heart and the community at large, but her most meaningful lessons take place at home. Tanya and her husband — also a former Jayhawks standout — frequently use hoops time to teach their daughter and two sons great basketball skills and the importance of having a heart for service.
