Larry Meyer has long had a passion for writing, literature, history, and debate. Larry majored in English and Philosophy at Emory University and began graduate studies in those fields at Emory before heading to law school at the University of Georgia. While at UGA, he participated in the Moot Court competition, was named Articles Editor of the Georgia Law Review, and was president of the Christian Legal Society. Upon graduating with a Juris Doctor degree, cum laude, he clerked for two years for the Chief Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court. He has honed his writing and debate skills as a litigator and active trial attorney for nearly 30 years. He has tried dozens of jury and bench trials, argued hundreds of motions before judges across the state, and has argued cases before the Georgia Supreme Court and Georgia Court of Appeals.
Larry has always been passionate about teaching and looks forward to inspiring his students to find truth, goodness, and the beauty of God in the “best which has been thought and said in the world” (Matthew Arnold). Larry has enjoyed coaching high school mock trial and has taught Sunday School and Christian apologetics to children, teens, and adults. Beginning in the fall of 2021, he will be teaching High School Composition and Literature, World History, Competitive Debate, and Advanced Competitive Debate. His goal is to develop students with sharp minds, powerful writing skills, deep historical knowledge, and masterful debating prowess. With these skills, and a love of God and neighbor, students can change the world for Christ.
Larry lives in Marietta with his wife Amy and his two children, Sam, who attends Metro Academic Studies and Madeleine, a 2109 graduate of MAS, who is majoring in history in the Honors Program at Berry College. He and his wife Amy have led the youth program and religious education program at their church. He loves reading, fishing, gardening, and enjoying the great outdoors.
