Education Pillar Event

Parents and Educators joined us for our inaugural Education Pillar Event. They learned how to become an advocate for biblical truth in the way that they instruct, guide, and mentor. We set out to equip leaders with the tools to use in their homes, schools, and places of influence.

Main Session Speakers

Dr. Kelly Kohls

Executive Director of the
National School Boards Leadership Council
Dr. Kelly Kohls is an involved freedom activist, an educator, and a businesswoman. With her extensive background in the fields of healthcare and education, Dr. Kohls has seen politics and public education change in ways that many citizens do not fully understand. She alerts citizens to those changes and empowers citizens and parents to maintain an active involvement in public
and school matters by taking personal responsibility for their children’s education.
As a leader of the National School Boards Leadership Council, Dr. Kohls travels the country informing the public on “Why Education Is Failing Our Students”. She presents not only the problems, but solutions and recommendations as well. School board members have been the victims of an organization offering them membership (paid for by district funds) that trains them how to simply be cheerleaders for their district and not to bring accountability to the education system. This new National School Boards Leadership will instead train members how to hold their district accountable. School board members are elected to represent the community and the children the community school educates. Dr. Kohls has experienced the tactics that render school board members ineffective and teaches them to do their jobs.
