Presenter Ryan Kline: She is always working on something PTSA-related, whether it’s the membership drive, CCC, decorating for Red/White Week, College 101 Night, volunteering at CAP, serving food at the teacher appreciation lunch, filling the board pipeline for next year or helping in the front office, she is an awesome multi-tasker. My mom is a doer and puts 150% effort into everything she touches. She wholeheartedly believes in the values and mission of the PTSA, and has spent the last 12 years embodying those. She has a truly unique gift for motivating and connecting with people. Helping teachers, parents and students has been her lifelong passion.
Presenter Barbara Coffield: Trish has a long history of PTA service with Dunn Elementary, Meyzeek Middle School, and duPont Manual. Trish doesn’t fill just one role at a time either. From leading our award-winning membership drives - which kick off in the summer and involve planning, execution, incentives, reminders, communication, and administrative reporting, to training and coordinating volunteers for the CCC, to leading the nominating committee, Trish takes on the jobs no one steps up for beautifully. Year after year. With a smile. With enthusiasm. I cannot imagine anyone more deserving than Trish for this recognition.
