Founder's Day

Lifetime and Extended Service Awards, and Founder's Day info

Every year, PTAs select their Lifetime and Extended Service awards. Form your Lifetime membership selection committee. This committee is typically made up of the membership chair and a couple of board members. Refer to your PTA’s by-laws for guidelines on the number of committee members needed.

A Lifetime PTA award winner can be anyone who has gone above and beyond to help your school’s PTA. Your PTA’s standing rules will tell you how many people you can honor and remember that a person can only receive the Lifetime award once. An extended service award is for 10 or more years of service. It is nice to give the Lifetime award first if they do not already have it.

Your honorees and one guest per person are invited to the Founder’s Day dinner. The cost of each individual ticket will be courtesy of YOUR PTA, so make sure that you have sufficient funds in budget. It is also suggested that the PTA President and the Principal of your school also attend, paid by the PTA.

You must also go to the Texas PTA website to order a certificate with your award winner’s name on it. This year each award winner will receive a personalized certificate, a pin and a decal. You can submit your award winners’ names and pay here:
• Extended service award is $125 + shipping
• Lifetime PTA award is $75 + shipping

Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have.
