Legacy Circle

In January 2008, the VaHomeschoolers Board of Directors voted to create The VaHomeschoolers Legacy Circle to recognize people who have made especially outstanding contributions to The Organization of Virginia Homeschoolers through their volunteer efforts and vision.

Six individuals were chosen as founding members: William Shaw, Margaret Shaw, Jay Phaup, Mary Alissa Wilson, Ellen Neal, and Shay Seaborne. VaHomeschoolers held a recognition ceremony and reception in their honor on Saturday, April 26, 2008 at the Science Museum of Virginia. In May 2011, Celeste Land was inducted into this select group.

These volunteers were and are leaders, moving the organization to new levels through their many years of service and strong belief in the founding principles of the organization. They have served homeschoolers across the state as role models, by supporting and mentoring other homeschool families. They are an important part of VaHomeschoolers history.

As members of the Legacy Circle, they are listed on each edition of the VaHomeschoolers Voice. Please refer to their biographies for highlights of their contributions to the organization. The board hopes they will continue as ambassadors to the community and the organization, providing a sense of history, guidance and support to current board members and homeschoolers.
