Mary is 18 years of age from Goodlettsville TN. She has been homeschooled her whole life alongside most of her eight other siblings. Through her family's church, a community was formed with other families and friends to collectively share all of their knowledge to successfully raise their children. She began to study U.S. government and break down the U.S. Constitution to really get an understanding of what being an American really meant. During her studies of the interworking of the political system, her family was introduced to Tennessee Teen Eagles. Teen Eagles is a branch of Eagle Forum for teens just as the name suggests. Mary has been part of Teen Eagles for four years. In 2013 Tennessee Legislator Research group was started by Mary and her fellow classmates to help educate our legislators on issues they may not have time to research themselves. She is now currently working on finishing her studies has a high school senior to graduate this spring and enter college in the fall.
