Justice Newby

North Carolina Coalition of Home Educators had their first annual day at in Raleigh. We had some wonderful speakers and it turned out to be a very positive day. We had almost 200 people from across the state. What make our day so special was all but one of our speakers were homeschool dads. The first speaker was one of the reasons we started our organization and the connection between all the members on the board. We all worked on his campaign and now we are proud to call him our Lt Governor- Dan Forest. Representative Bert Jones gave a talk about how the legislative works and how a bill becomes a law. Senator Warren Daniel gave a brief talk and then gave a tour of the Senate chambers. Representative Skip Stam answered questions from the kids. In between all of these speakers, we had families visiting legislators and talking about issues important to homeschoolers. For the last speaker of the day we headed to the NC Supreme Court to hear a wonderful talk by Supreme Court Justice Paul Newby about the Mecklenburg Resolves. He tied so many truths and lessons into this talk. It was a huge success.
