PTA Lifetime Membership Nomination
Since 1909, the Texas PTA has made available the honorary Texas Life Membership as one of the highest honors that may be presented to individuals for outstanding service to children and youth. It is awarded to a person whose dedication to both Tadlock Elementary School and our community goes above and beyond. This can be a neighbor, a friend, or a teacher – not necessarily a Tadlock PTA member – who has contributed significantly to school and/or the community. Life Members will be recognized this spring at Celebrate Tadlock as well as at a banquet. The banquet will be held Thursday, May 3rd from 6:30-8:30PM and will honor all of this year’s Frisco ISD PTA Life Membership award winners.
Do you know of someone deserving of this honor? Please fill out the Nomination Form, place it in a sealed envelope marked “PTA Life Member” and return it to the school office. You may also email your nomination to email@example.com with the subject: Life Membership. Nominations are due Friday, February 2nd.
