Mr. Ziemnick and his wife, Nancy, learned about PHC when they met Mike Farris in 2003, just after they decided to homeschool their children. Living in California, they became convinced that PHC was the right place at the right time for this country.

Mr. Ziemnick grew up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, so he’s proud to be a Yooper. In his spare time, if he’s not on the basketball or tennis court with some of the PHC students, he’s out enjoying the traditions of hunting and firearms he grew up with back home.
