Mr. Keillor is the creator of Mark Keillor’s American Pie Seminar, an extensive lesson that includes history, civics, community economic literacy, and leadership. His approach is to relate individuals’ lives in a way that makes them want to understand civics principles and become active in their communities. He has studied the U.S. Constitution, “untaught history” and the lack of civics education in America. He spent a career in community and economic development. His writings clear up misconceptions of the Federal debt, taxes and the wealth gap, civil unrest, and much more. He is a graduate of Ball State University and the Economic Development Institute.
