LeighAnn (in blue) recieves the PTA Life Achievement Award
The National PTA Life Achievement Award is the highest honor from the nation’s largest child advocacy organization, awarded to "the person who daily lives out his or her commitment to children." My daughter LeighAnn was awarded this achievement this morning at a special ceremony at their school. She receives a certificate, a letter from the national PTA president and a 24K gold lapel pin. It was a surprise to her.
LeighAnn said she suspected something when she saw the principal call her youngest two into the office, and then when she saw me there, she knew something was up.
Here she is with the principal. The PTA also gave LeighAnn a hanging basket of flowers.
This is a particularly sad-sweet year end because this is her last year of involvement at this elementary school. Next year the two younger boys will be closer to where they moved three years ago. LeighAnn has driven them quite distance every day because of their love for the school and the teachers.
