The time has come to start looking for NEW PTA Board members! I implore you to consider joining this team. Working together and with the administration at Liberty has been a major bright spot in this past year. If you think “someone else will step-up,” I am telling you they aren’t or they won’t.

Each Board sets their own goals and that always takes into account what each Boards’ resources are.
