Hello MS PTA Leaders,
Welcome to Mississippi PTA. The Mission of PTA, “To make every child’s potential a reality by
engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.”
As a member of the Mississippi PTA, you are a voice for our children and are part of the largest
child advocacy program in the nation! As I embark on my first year as your State PTA President, I
am looking forward to establishing new relationships, enhancing those already formed, and
networking with each of you to make our PTAs a viable entity to support our children.
I encourage each and every one of you to become a part of this team. Becoming a PTA member will
demonstrate to all of our children the importance you place on education. By volunteering with your
PTAs, you gain a wealth of experience and it is an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to
good use for a great cause. By getting involved, you’ll be part of the solution, helping to make
positive change. PTA functions provide opportunities to meet other parents and teachers and the PTA is a
forum for exchanging ideas.
As we transition let us meet any challenges and or obstacles together because we can all learn from
each other. Let’s make Mississippi PTA proud of its accomplishments as we work together toward the
common goal of making every child’s potential a reality.
Beverly Duck-Davis, President
