Board of Directors
Doyle and Amity Fritts
Doyle & Amity live in Ham Lake, Minnesota with their four children. After sending their two daughters to public school, they decided to bring them home to begin their homeschooling adventure, where they could learn together as a family and provide them with a Christian worldview. Homeschooling has allowed them the flexibility to teach according to the needs and interests of each of their children and tailor their learning experience to their specific gifts. In addition to homeschooling they enjoy travelling, camping, and boating - when schedules allow. Doyle works in the security software industry as a pre-sales engineer. Amity chose to leave the education workforce and apply her elementary education degree to teaching their children and others at their homeschool co-op. All of the family serves in their local church in a variety of ways including nursery, sound/tech, kids programs, and setup.
Rob and Susan Prigge live in Eden Prairie where they home educated their four children. All of their children have successfully launched their post-collegiate careers and now reside in the eastern and western U.S. Traveling is now clearly a Prigge priority. Rob retired from his banking career in 2015, and in the same year started the next chapter of work as a Board Director for a Pennsylvania based Trust Company where he continues to serve. Eager to serve where the Lord leads, and given our passion for Christian homeschooling, it didn’t come as a surprise when called to serve as MACHE’s new Executive Director in early 2022. We remain excited to see God’s hand in our lives and in the lives of those he’s called. Our prayer is that many would have the joy and success of a family knitted together with home education being a wonderful addition to the life of more Christian families.
