Top 5 States: Tennessee Overtakes Oregon!

Tue Oct 02, 07 2:05 pm

As of October 1, 2007, the HSA membership roles indicate that the greatest homeschool graduate population concentrations are in the following states:

For a real-time report of the number of homeschoolers in each state see the following: Alumni Network Population Distribution by State

Tennessee has once again shot ahead of Oregon and reclaimed its former glory in the #5 spot, leaving Oregon (temporarily?) in the dust at #6. This saga is certainly not yet over! Tennessee (#5) is leading by only a 2-graduate margin (91 to 89), and Oregon (#6) could easily close this distance with the recruitment of only 3 more graduates. The drama continues... Cool

Speaking of numbers, Illinois (#4) currently has 99 members. One more graduate recruited and Illinois would join the few states that hold the distinction of having 100+ members. Those states are Missouri (#1 with 335 graduates), California (#2 with 175 graduates), and Texas (#3 with 149 graduates).

The Gold Medal for increase in graduates this month goes to Missouri (#1) with an increase of 14 additional graduates from September 1 to October 1. Illinois (#4) and Michigan (#10) are tied for the Silver Medal with an increase of 7 graduates each, and the Bronze Medal goes to Iowa (#21) with an increase of 6 graduates last month.

Check back next month to see if Oregon (#6) will once again oust Tennessee (#5) from its place in the Top 5, or whether Tennessee (#6) has firmly established its foothold there. Will Illinois (#4) enter triple digits? Who will win the Gold Medal for most graduates recruited during the month of October? Will Puerto Rico (#52) ever have more than 1 member??

All these answers and more will be found in next month's "Top Five Report." Until then, go tell the homeschool graduates in your area about HSA. We hope to see your state next in the top 5! Cool

Aw... poor Puerto Rico! I may have to go down there and go on a recruiting spree if things don't get happening down there Smile

Wow... I think Missouri has hit that critical mass where word of mouth is increasing exponentially. But I gotta be cheering for the Carolina's now Smile

Hey Laura and Brian, I'm going to be recruiting soon at my college here in Tennessee, so good luck catching up! :p

Hmm, I just realized I may have spoken too soon! Many people here aren't actually from TN and might put their home states in. Oh well, I think we will still grow here in TN though!
