“TN Student Eagles Soar at Home and on the Road” | Frances Arthur, Student Eagle Leader
Frances Arthur grew up all across the United States near military bases, having been born to parents who served in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War Era. Upon earning a degree in Music Education, she taught general music, music theory, and choir in the public school system. She has since taught in homeschool and homeschool tutorial settings. In her 34 years as a professional educator, Frances has developed a skillset which allows her to effectively teach government, politics, economics, American history, and world history. Frances and Dale have two amazing sons, Ben and David, who were both homeschooled through their graduation from high school. Ben, a SCUBA instructor in South Georgia, is also a soldier and paratrooper in the Alabama Army National Guard. David, a Marine veteran, is now a border patrol agent serving in New Mexico. Frances has written four books that include an Emotional Health curriculum for high school students, “Pearls of Wisdom for Homeschooling Moms,” and most recently “Life Lessons for Graduates: A Working Journal.”
Her favorite volunteer work that she does is serving with TN Eagle Forum as the Student Eagle Director for TN, teaching teenagers across the state how to participate in their government effectively. Frances has served in this role since 2011. She also serves as the National Student Eagle Chairman for Eagle Forum. In her spare time, she is a competitive ballroom dancer.
