Guest speaker is Rep. Matt Krause. Krause was born in Tyler, where his father was youth pastor at Green Acres Baptist Church. He is a constitutional attorney, college professor of American history and government, and public speaker on America's Founding Fathers.
Rep. Krause is also the executive director of the Torch of Freedom Foundation, where the next generation of leaders is trained through Patriot Academy. Patriot Academy is held at the Texas Capitol and other states every summer where students learn the political process and how to make a difference in the culture whether through politics, the law, the media, or whatever area into which they have been called.
He has received an A+ rating from Empower Texans, 100% from Texas Eagle Forum, and a "Top 5" Courageous Conservative Award from Texas Conservative Coalition during his Freshman Session.
The vision of Patriot Academy is to equip a new generation of young people to become leaders in federal, state, and local governments and to help bring the nation back to the principles of liberty on which it was founded.
Its goals are to:
1. Train students to develop government policy with a conservative worldview like that of the Founding Fathers of America.
2. Teach the political process through hands-on training that prepares these leaders to win in the arena of ideas.
3. Motivate students to be leaders in politics, business, entertainment, media, and all areas of the culture.
