First there was Mike squared (Mike Farris and Mike Smith). Then we had two Calebs, two Davids, two Riches, three Andrews, and a couple of Katies. Continuing Home School Legal Defense Associations trend of hiring multiples of good names, we now have two ScottsScott Somerville and Scott Woodruff.
Hailing from the Show-Me State of Missouri, Scott Woodruff, Esq., joined HSLDAs staff in September. Scott is taking on contacts for about half of our other Scotts (Somerville) states. (See list below.)
Scott (Woodruff, that is) began home schooling about three years ago when his wife Jane became interested in home schooling their two little girls, and his son Christopher came home from private Christian school asking to be home schooled. The Woodruffs gave home education a trial run for one month that summer and have been sold on it ever since. Their three children are Christopher, 12; Sarah, 6; and Betsy, 8.
Following completion of a double major in English and Foreign Affairs (B.A.) and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Virginia, Scott Woodruff landed his first job out of law school with then-Missouri attorney general John Ashcroft. There, he also met his future wife, Jane.
Scott was working in the legal department of a major regional insurance company when he spotted and responded to HSLDAs ad for a new attorney in the January/February Court Report. He is licensed to practice law in Virginia and Missouri. He and his family have relocated to Leesburg, Virginia.
The Woodruffs enjoy studying history, hiking, camping, gardening, and Boy Scouts. (Scott started a Boy Scout troop for home schoolers back in Missouri.) Theyve studied ancient Greek, Spanish, and colonial history, and theyre on about the fifth trip through C.S. Lewis Chronicles of Narnia.
