The North Fulton Council Parent Teacher Association (NFC PTA) was recognized last weekend at the Georgia PTA Convention Leadership and Training Conference with the “Council Exemplary Award.” North Fulton Council PTA was one of two councils to receive a perfect score.
The Council Exemplary Award is awarded to Councils that have a strong commitment to their local units, the community-at-large and that provides proven benefits to all students.
For 2012-2013, NFC PTA is the largest PTA membership council within Georgia, representing nearly 15% of all the Georgia PTA membership, with all of our local PTA units being in good standing. NFC PTA carries a sizable voice with the goal of advocating for educational excellence for all students, not just those in North Fulton County.
“Our team is a committed, just-do-it group of phenomenal volunteer parents from across North Fulton, representing schools from the Sandy Springs to Milton and areas both east and west of GA 400. Each volunteer brings differing skills and experiences, and has committed themselves to assisting Fulton County Schools and working for, and advocating on behalf of all of our children, “says Inge Robb, co-president of NFC PTA.
“I am incredibly proud of our all of our local units and our steadfast NFC PTA team’s accomplishments, and honored to have an opportunity to serve with each. They are an incredible bunch,” says Robb. “Our NFC PTA continues to be dedicated to FCS’ strategic vision as well as the PTA’s mission: To make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.”
