    I am very proud to share some exciting news with you. The Huntsville Council of PTAs has been selected by National PTA as the recipients of the 2018 Outstanding Local PTA Advocacy Award! Advocacy is the core of what PTA is all about, and our partnership with all of you helped make this award possible. Representatives were honored to go to Washington, DC in March to attend the National PTA Legislative Conference and accept this award. A big part of the application talked about partnerships and engaging the community - something you all were part of! So on behalf of all of you and all of the students in Madison County they are honored to be selected for this award.
