This episode has Will Hicks speaking briefly, followed by a testimony from another HP dad, Brooks Hoven. Dr. Ken Kush, the Director of Schools at Horizon Prep is the third and final guest on the episode.
As Dr. K begins he asks the question "What is a hedgehog?" If he ever asks you, the correct answer is "That thing that we are passionate about here at HP, and that we do well; Providing a Christ-centered Biblical worldview Classical Education."
