HONOR THAT SPECIAL VOLUNTEER OR EDUCATOR!

The Marjorie Holwick Wall of Fame is a special recognition program to honor educators, parents, students, and volunteers who have made special contributions in the lives of children.

For just $10 per nominee, each special person honored will have a certificate with their name on display on the Wall of Fame during our State Convention. They will also receive by mail a certificate, along with a letter from Kansas PTA announcing they were part of the Wall of Fame, listing who submitted their name, with the reasons why. They will also be listed in an article in our state newsletter further honoring them.

In 2002 the wall of fame was changed to the “Marjorie Holwick Wall of Fame”, to honor Marjorie who served as the Kansas PTA State Parliamentarian for 27 years, through 13 administrations. Members are encouraged to honor outstanding volunteers, outstanding students, as well as outstanding educators.

The proceeds from these nominations become contributions to the Kansas PTA Future Teacher Scholarship Fund and Teacher Graduate Study in Education Fund.

Please complete the nomination form and include those special qualities or reasons for nominating some special person to the Wall of Fame. Click to download the nomination form.
