Clarksville HomeschoolClarksville, TN – Most of us are aware that homeschooling has grown in popularity in recent years, but many would be surprised to know that more than 100 students from Clarksville-Montgomery County attended this year’s Clarksville Homeschool Co-op Prom.

Becky Bittner is one of the volunteers that help to organize the annual event.

“All these students are from homeschool families,” Bittner said. “This prom is put on each year by CHC, and everyone here is a volunteer. The parents are the ones who make this happen. I’ve been directing the event for the past couple of years, and we have a great team of parents that just want to see their kids have a great time at prom.”
