Peabody PTA Leader Lunches at the White House!

We all know she’s got leadership skills, but in early December… PTA co-president Mandy Grisham had her eye on the Whitehouse!

Mandy was invited by the US Department of Education to attend a reception and private tour of the White House. Mandy is the 2011 Tennessee representative for Parenting Magazine’s Mom Congress.  City Leadership sponsored her trip.

“My time with the other delegates was inspiring.  It’s amazing to hear what they are doing in their own states to support education.”

In January, Mandy will return to DC to meet with the Department of Education and other Mom Congress delegates to discuss ways the government can improve communication with parents regarding Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).  

She will also meet with school nutrition experts, as well as Kaboom! to thank them for their support of Peabody!
