For many years, the Texas Home School Coalition (THSC) has honored a home school support group leader from the great state of Texas with the coveted THSC Home School Leader of the Year Award. Support group members and fellow leaders nominate exceptional leaders and look forward to the award presentation at the Texas Leaders Conference. With the addition of a second Texas Leaders Conference came the need to divide our nominees into two categories, North Texas and South Texas Leader of the Year. These awards are just one way THSC shows our appreciation to leaders across the state for their sacrifice of time.
Congratulations to the 2015 North Texas Support Group Leader of the Year, Wendy Johnson!
Wendy and her husband Brian have been married for thirteen and a half years. They wed under a Mulberry Tree in her Grannie’s backyard shortly before Christmas, 2001. They have two boys: Kutter, age 11, and Kaden, age 9 and have home schooled since Kutter was two.
Wendy serves on the ECCHO Board of Directors as well as the Enrichment Class Director for the elementary and junior high classes. When asked what her favorite thing about leadership is, Wendy’s response was: “The favorite thing about my leading my group is the families. They are loving, supportive, kind, and just lots of fun all around. I love serving them and serving alongside them. It brings me enjoyment and fulfillment knowing that not only are my kids getting a great experience, but I too am growing as a person and becoming the servant that God wants me to be. To see the smiles on the faces of the kiddos just makes it all worthwhile. On top of all that, I get to do one of my favorite things – plan classes! #IlovemyECCHOpeeps ”
Congratulations to Wendy for a job well done! Leadership is a tough job and she has executed it with grace and love!

Join us in The Woodlands at the Texas Leaders Conference on July 23 to witness the honor of receiving this prestigious award. Whether you have been leading a support group for years, are just starting a home school support group, or would like to know more about home school leadership, the Texas Leaders Conference is the place to begin.

Not sure what to do with your students while attending leadership training?
Children ages 8-18 will also enjoy a time of instruction with the Student’s Texas Leadership Conference hosted by 4-H.
Our philosophy is that nobody can or will love our children the way that we do. We strongly believe that as long as God provides the opportunity for us to teach our children what we feel is most important in life, we are going to pursue that path.”
