Why did you become involved with the PAA? I have always been proud to be a product of Parkway and have enjoyed leadership opportunities and the chance to give back to the District

Favorite PAA project: My favorite PAA role has been the impact of the Granting Dreams program. It not only allows students outstanding opportunities, but is also a great outreach for fund families to honor there loved ones. It truly demonstrates what "giving back" looks like full circle. I also enjoy planning, welcoming back and celebrating the humbling accomplishments of our HOF awardees.
