Keynote Speaker

WPA is pleased to announce the speaker for the graduate event, Chandler Forbes. Chandler grew up in a Wisconsin homeschooling family, attended Calvin College, and graduated from Compass Film School, both in Grand Rapids, MI. He worked in the film-making business for several years. He is presently managing a filming studio for a company that supplies equipment for lighting and co-owns a massage business. Chandler’s life is an example of how a lifestyle of learning at home can lead to wonderful opportunities in technical fields.
