Adele Sekerak
Adele Sekerak is the mother of three daughters, Sandy, Angie, and Nina. The wife of a retired Army officer, she has homeschooled in Hawaii, Nebraska, Georgia, Virginia, New Mexico, and Alabama. Her daughter Sandy graduated from Patrick Henry College this spring with a degree in writing. Angie, who is pursuing an art degree, will be a senior at Pensacola Christian College in the fall. Nina plans to study chemistry at Pensacola Christian College as an incoming freshman. The Sekeraks presently reside in Madison, Alabama.

Marybeth Clemmer
Before coming to Patrick Henry College, Marybeth Clemmer was homeschooled from the 1st grade. Now a senior in college, she is pursuing a degree in Government-Public Policy and will graduate in the spring of 2006. She will serve as the campus resident director for women in fall 2005 and is considering working in public service after she graduates.

Jeanne Domenech
Jeanne Domenech, mother of four, started homeschooling in 1986. Her three oldest children have successfully navigated the college admissions process, and in 2002 she helped her daughter establish NCAA eligibility for Division I Women's Crew at the University of Virginia. Now, child number three is working on his eligibility for Division I Swimming at George Mason University, under the new, much improved regulations for homeschoolers. Jeanne hopes her comments on Home School Heartbeat will encourage other homeschoolers to pursue their athletic as well as their academic goals.
