Top 5 States: Holding Ground

Thu Nov 01, 07 7:44 pm

As of November 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

No new states have entered the Top 5 this month. Oregon (#6) continues to trail just behind Tennessee (#5) by a mere 3-graduate margin. So close...yet so far away.

Last month, at 99 members, Illinois (#4) was 1 graduate away from joining the few states with 100+ members. This month, Illinois (#4) sits comfortably among that group with 106 members. Tennessee (#5), currently with 95 members, could also gain that distinction with the recruitment of only 5 more graduates.

The Gold Medal for greatest increase in alumni members is awarded once again to the great state of Missouri (#1) with an increase of 13 additional graduates from October 1 to November 1, and Texas (#3) gains the Silver Medal with an increase of 10 additional graduates. California (#2) and Washington (#11) are tied for the Bronze Medal with an increase of 9 graduates each.

(Washington jumped 2 places from 13th to 11th last month! Cool)

Check back next month to see if Oregon will ever gain those needed 4 graduates to overtake Tennessee and regain its former seat of glory in the Top 5. Who will win the Gold Medal for most graduates recruited in the month of November? Will Tennessee enter triple digits?

Check back for all these answers and more 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

If Colorado were to hit the Top 5 by next month, we should get the Platinum Medal for greatest increase in alumni members, you know? Razz

Neither Israel Wayne (MI, #12) nor I (OH, #9) helped our causes by talking two Missourians into signing up a few weeks ago! Smile

Come to think of it, I have played a role in signing up at least five Missourians. I can't remember how many Ohioans I've mentioned HSA to, but definitely fewer than 5 have joined.

Poor West Virginia, I fear we may never catch up! Course, I don't know any homeschool alumni here to tell about the site. Sad

But Zack.....that is only because you abandoned us MO people. Crying or Very sad (Please have mercy on those you left behind. Just kidding. But we really do miss you. Need you here for dancing.)

Haha... I love reading your reports Emilie!

My poor South Carolina was at #27 when I moved there... and now we're down to #29! *snif snif*

... I gotta get on the ball!

^ Try to resist making the connection between your move and the sudden drop in position for South Carolina, Camden. I'm pretty sure it doesn't mean least, I think I'm pretty sure it doesn't mean, I'm sure it doesn't mean anything. Wink

Now, go start recruiting! Very Happy
