Four PTA leaders walked timidly into the media center at Shoreline Junior High School Wednesday, and, in a way representative of their organization’s character, politely disrupted the faculty meeting.
Sporting balloons, baskets and signs, they called Principal TJ Barker and Special Education teacher Emilee Midget to the front of the room, announcing they had been named as the Utah PTA Outstanding School Administrator and Outstanding Secondary Educator, respectively.
After applause broke out, both posed for photos and Shoreline PTA President Rachel Milne shared glowing accounts regarding why reach received the state recognition.
The following day, PTA Region 3 Director LeeAnn Brocious and Region Associate Director Mara Hammer hosted a breakfast and awards ceremony in the district’s Richard E. Kendall Building for other individuals recognized for their service to their schools.
