Taking Back This Brave New World: Speakers in Support of Liberty

Manchester, NH – Liberty Harbor Academy is hosting their annual American Dream Award on Wednesday, May 21 at the Manchester Country Club with keynote speakers Betsy McCaughey, Ph.D, Dr. Julianne Cooper, and Ann Marie Banfield who will speak on Obamacare and Common Core. Tickets are on sale through Eventbrite and at the door.

To buy tickets: Eventbrite    

If you are feeling out of control these days, with Affordable Care Act challenging your ability to provide medical service to your family and employees on one hand, and then looking towards the future and seeing Common Core crippling the next generation, there is an event you should know about. The VIP Reception begins at 6:00pm and the speakers begin at 7:00pm. The evening will benefit Liberty Harbor Academy, a school designed to provide students with a well- rounded liberal-arts education without sacrificing the students’ capacity to think for themselves (and a school that doesn’t subscribe to Common Core).

Liberty Harbor Academy is a private middle- and high-school in Manchester, NH that emphasizes continual learning, growing to your potential, and preparing students not just for one thing but for life as a whole. The Liberty Harbor education encompasses challenging academics, business knowledge, and character development. Rolling admissions for the 2014-15 school year are currently ongoing.

Betsy McCaughey, Ph.D., is the expert you see on Fox News and CNBC and in the pages of the Wall Street Journal explaining the 2,572-page Obama health law.

Also a patient advocate, she launched a national campaign to stop hospital infections. Dr. McCaughey is a former Lt. Governor of New York and has taught at Vassar College and Columbia University.

As a serial entrepreneur Cooper was president and CEO of Cooper/GK Advertising and Marketing, President of PublicVirtues, an Ethics Consulting firm, as well as amassing more than 25 years experience in directing educational programs and university teaching.
