US Presidential Scholar

Our son was a United States Presidential Scholar for 2018.  He was one of 161 high school students from across the United States.  We attended the ceremony in Washington DC.  It was an incredible experience.   

Nathan nominated me as his favorite teacher.  So I am now a US Presidential Scholar Distinguished Teacher.    Though I am not sure if my other children are that impressed.  I am adding it to my credentials.  

There was an article about us in a Chinese newspaper.    I do not speak Chinese, but my sister in-law who is Chinese said it was a very nice article.  

Here is Nathan with Mick Zais from the department of education receiving his medal.   

The certificate we received from the Ohio Board of Education. 

It said . . . Nathan's achievement exemplifies the best aspects of  Ohio's Education system and made our state proud.   For some reason that made me smile.

Happy Friday!  You never know where homeschooling will take you! 


  1. Congratulations! What a proud moment for you as a mama and a teacher. :)

  2. What a fantastic accomplishment! Congratulations to Nathan! & To you Becky! How proud you must be as a mom, and a teacher! ❤

  3. Thank you so much Renee! I appreciate your kind words.

    Thanks Lori! Nathan completed the application in the middle of our other so's cancer treatment. The funny thing was I did not really think he had a chance. Glad I listened to him. :-)

  4. WOW! That is so awesome, congrats to him and you! :)
