CHEO Celebrates 25th Anniversary: Join us in June!
Christian Home Educators of Ohio (CHEO) has been an invaluable partner to Home School Legal Defense Association and provides tremendous service to the homeschoolers of Ohio.
CHEO retains a registered lobbyist, Melanie Elsey, who provides exceptional service in tracking issues of importance to Ohio homeschoolers in the legislature, the state board of education, and the department of education. CHEO’s office director Leslie Smith, board of directors, and county contacts are always ready to provide an encouraging word and help to new or veteran homeschoolers.
Another invaluable resource is CHEO’s annual conference. This year, CHEO celebrates its 25th anniversary at the annual convention to be held June 27–29, 2009 in Columbus at the Veterans Memorial Hall. An outstanding lineup of speakers and events will encourage and equip you as a homeschooling parent. Speakers include Rick and Marilyn Boyer, Andrew Pudewa, and HSLDA Special Needs Coordinator Dianne Craft. HSLDA Staff Attorney Michael Donnelly will also participate and deliver several workshops on a variety of topics.
Please join us as we celebrate CHEO's 25th anniversary in Columbus this June!
