From Nancy Manos, Executive Director
After 16 years of serving the Arizona homeschool community as part of AFHE, I am retiring from my position with the organization. I value the work AFHE does and count it a great privilege to have served alongside so many amazing men and women who are passionate about this work. It’s been a joy over the years to build beautiful connections and friendships, and to use my gifts to serve families and support the work of AFHE as we inspire, promote, and preserve homeschooling in Arizona. I will continue in my role as executive director through May.
The AFHE Board is united in mission and their care for each of you. They will continue encouraging and equipping parents and protecting homeschool freedom in our great state. James and I believe God has a great plan for AFHE and we know He will lead and guide the board through this transition. I’m excited to see what God does in this next season for AFHE and for myself as well. Personally, I look forward to some downtime to quilt, write, visit our grandboys, enjoy a slower pace, and see where God leads. AFHE has a 37-year history and a rich heritage of service that will continue well into the future. Please continue supporting your statewide homeschool organization. They are doing important work!
From AFHE Board of Directors
The AFHE Board of Directors is truly grateful to Nancy for her years of dedicated service to homeschool families. Through her tireless efforts, vision for growth, and pursuit of excellence, AFHE has equipped and empowered many thousands of parents to give their children the gift of a home-based education. We are excited for Nancy as she moves to a new chapter of life where she will be able enjoy more time with her daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren. Finally, we are grateful to Nancy for continuing to serve our community through to ensure a smooth transition.
There are exciting days ahead for AFHE. The vision and work of AFHE is possible because of the dedication of homeschool parents like James and Nancy Manos, who have had a vision for both educating their children and serving as many other homeschool families as possible. That pattern and example of service continues in the work of AFHE, our Board of Directors, our committed staff and volunteers, and the vibrant community of homeschoolers throughout Arizona.
