Celebrate South Carolina Homeschool
Awareness Week

October 5th through October 11th, 2003

Special thanks to homeschool students Steven and Todd.
They took a home school assignment one step further.
They learned how a bill becomes law, and they pursued it.
This definitely shows how Homeschoolers of South Carolina are motivated.
Way to go boys!
