Regions Honors Yolanda Hollingsworth with May Better Life Award

Regions associate and volunteer coach helps children hit home runs, prepare for their financial futures.

If Yolanda Hollingsworth is on your team, you’re guaranteed a home run. That’s true for Regions’ Middle Tennessee team that Hollingsworth supports as a Marketing Manager, the youth baseball team she coaches, and the underserved school children who learn about financial education from her.

Hollingsworth actively recruits Regions associate volunteers to teach the Junior Achievement (JA) curriculum in more than 140 classrooms across Middle Tennessee each year and was named the group’s Volunteer of the Year in 2014. She has inspired many of her JA students to dream of owning a business or pursue banking as a future career. Regions is donating $1,000 to Junior Achievement of Middle Tennessee on her behalf.

Hollingsworth serves as board treasurer for the Tennessee Jump$tart Coalition, and mentors Regions associates who aspire to work in marketing. She also coaches her son’s travel baseball team, alongside her husband.
