The AFHE Board of Directors would like to thank Rick and Linda Crosby for their faithful service as board members. The Crosbys retired from the AFHE Board in November 2016.

Rick served as the Scholarship Liaison for the Arizona Homeschool Scholarship Fund. His passion for seeing Arizona homeschool graduates go on to pursue post-secondary education shone through as he oversaw the scholarship application and award process. Under his leadership, many students have received scholarships to assist in their college tuition and book costs. Rick’s warm personality and heart for people enriched many AFHE events as he mingled and chatted with attendees so easily and thoughtfully.

Linda’s gifts of administration, organization, event planning/hosting, and detail-wrangling have been a blessing in myriad ways that served AFHE and the homeschool community well. As Senior High Graduation Director, Linda and her committee created a beautiful, God-honoring, high-quality commencement experience for hundreds of Arizona homeschool graduates. She served as Secretary of the board, Leadership Conference co-planner, Convention assistant, magazine proofreader, and more. Linda is also a delightfully gifted speaker and author who shares encouragement and practical inspiration along with a healthy dose of humor.

We are blessed to have served with Rick and Linda the past 5 ½ years and we pray blessings on this next season of their lives.
