Today’s Anniversary: Mississippi

It's December 10, and Mississippi became a state on this date in 1817.  Today's blog kicks off three days of blogs about state anniversaries, and we're doing so by featuring a state we've never visited for a convention.  When we think about which conventions to attend in a particular year, we take a lot of things into consideration.  We want to go to shows where plenty of children want to earn a high school diploma at home.  Sometimes we attend shows for guidance counselors in which we will feature our independent study high school program instead.  We try to go to all corners of the country, although some regions do not host conventions or we are unable to attend for logistical reasons.  In total, we attend about 25 shows a year, and although none have been in Mississippi, it doesn't mean we haven't tried to attend a show there, and it doesn't mean we've never met our Mississippi students in person.  Perhaps we've seen them at other shows in the southeast or have met their counselors at a school counseling show.  We want to reach as many students as possible because we believe our accredited high school program and accredited middle school program are second to none.  We look forward to seeing students past, present and future when we return to the road in early 2020!
