AFHE Welcomes New Board Couple
Scott and Sherry McKown

December 2012

AFHE is pleased to introduce our newest board members, Scott and Sherry McKown. We look forward to working alongside Scott and Sherry in serving Arizona's homeschool community.


Scott and Sherry McKown are from the Midwest and met while working on their degrees at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri. They fell in love and married before their senior year of college in 1991. After graduation they moved to Arizona with the dream of raising their family in the Valley of the Sun. Even before they started having children, they both had a passion for homeschooling.

They are blessed to have two daughters, Makenzie (18) and Mikayla (11), and two sons, Madison (15) and Morgan (13). Makenzie was the first to graduate in May 2012 and is a full-time student at Arizona Christian University. Madison, Morgan, and Mikayla are still being homeschooled and are involved in Eastside Explorers, where Sherry formerly served on the Board of Directors and served as President for three years.

Scott currently manages a private hedge fund and Sherry is a full-time homeschooling mom. While Scott enjoys playing tennis, golf, and watching his favorite football teams and Sherry enjoys baking, reading good books, and decorating, their life is fully centered around their family and church. They have lived in Scottsdale since 2003 and are actively involved at North Bible Church where they serve on the Marriage Ministry Team. Their passion is helping to build strong families through strong marriages. Scott and Sherry speak in churches, teach marriage enrichment classes, and mentor couples on how to build marriages and families that yield a fruitful, joy-centered in Jesus Christ.

Being active homeschooling parents for 15 years, they look forward to the challenges and blessings that will come through serving the homeschooling community. Scott and Sherry are honored to be a part of the AFHE Board and look forward to working diligently to preserve the freedoms that we have in Arizona.
