Came across the Famous Homeschoolers website and I have to say this site ROCKS!!! It is so much more than just a list of famous homeschoolers.... you know what I mean the old standbys, we can recite by heart. Of course, they are listed-the Famous Mt.Rushmore Presidents, who were ALL homeschooled, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to name a few that I knew about before scouring the site.
The surprise was finding all the people that are famous now or in recent years that were homeschooled. These include Sandra Day O'Connor, first woman justice on the US Supreme Court. Discovered both of the Wright brothers home educated as well.
Bethany Hamilton, from "Soul Surfer" and Lila Rose, who is the founder of the pro-life group Live Action. As I'm sure most of you will recall Live Action has made the news in recent years with their undercover reporting at Planned Parenthood! How Cool Is That!!!!! These are young ladies that I would be proud to have my daughter look up to.
