I grew up on a farm outside Farmer City, IL.  I taught speech and mathematics at Carlinville High School 1972-1980.  I am active in Kiwanis, the Okaw Valley Amateur Radio Club, and the American Farm Heritage Museum.  My wife, Tonya, teaches in the University Pathways program.  Our younger daughter, Allison, lives here in Greenville.  Our older daughter and her family live in Chapel Hill, TN.  We have three granddaughters and one grandson ranging in age from 18 to 16 months old.  

About Cary Holman

My wife Tonya and I enjoy traveling. Together we have visited the Dominican Republic and Paraguay. Tonya has also traveled to Russia and to Mozambique. We also enjoy visiting our daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters who live near Nashville, Tennessee.

I am an active member of the Greenville Kiwanis club and of the American Farm Heritage Museum. While I do dabble in collecting early editions of important books, my main hobby is amateur radio. As of late September 2009 I have made contacts with other amateurs in 44 countries (working toward 100).
