Tanya Terry, MS
Editor

I was born in Dallas, TX, but I grew up in Ashdown, AR, where my mother single-handedly raised me and my brother. I grew up in the country, where there was only one channel on television, so I spent most of my time reading and singing. My love of reading and singing paid off and earned me many academic  and music awards in high school, where I served as student body president and received a full ride scholarship to Henderson State University for voice. Since my family was poor and couldn't afford college, I decided to take the scholarship, but after attending Henderson my freshman year and flunking piano, I decided that music wasn't really for me, so I pursued an education in my first love, Reading. 


I learned to read when I was three years old, and when I started school, I was so far ahead of my kindergarten class that my teacher decided to give me my own group of students to teach. It was at that moment that I knew I wanted to be a reading teacher. I attended Texarkana College for an associate's degree, then transferred to Texas A & M, Texarkana to finish my Bachelor's of Science in English Language Arts/Secondary Education in 2006 and a Master of Science in English Language Arts and Curriculum and Instruction in 2011. 


Since college graduation, I have spent my time teaching at Texas High School in Texarkana, TX, and I am now branching out into the editing world, enjoying my time as a junior editor with College Boy Publishing.

"Being part of such a hard-working company, I truly feel honored and fortunate. My hope is that interning with CBP will teach me the strategies and give me the insight essential for the business world. By putting forth my ideas and best effort, I believe that we can all flourish and inspire each other as a team. I definitely feel that teamwork will make the overall dream work. With that being said, I'm extremely excited and eager to begin a successful journey with my cohorts."
