West Virginia PTA
Honorary Life Membership Award

Life membership in the West Virginia PTA is an honorary membership that is presented in recognition of outstanding and faithful service performed in the interest and welfare of children and youth.  The recipient need not be a member of a PTA; he/she could be a teacher, principal, superintendent, board of education member, crossing guard, any person who has given outstanding services to children and youth. 

This honorary membership does not carry with it the right to vote, make motions, or serve as an officer in the local PTA, unless the recipient has a membership in that local PTA. 

The honor of the Life Membership is something the recipient should carry with much honor, distinction, and pride.  When presented with a Life Membership, the recipient receives a honorary life membership pin and certificate recognizing their service to all children and youth.

A West Virginia PTA Life Membership can be purchased for $45 from the West Virginia PTA. $15 of the cost supports the West Virginia PTA Scholarship Fund.

Anytime is good to honor an individual: Founder’s Day, your annual meeting or banquet, and/or retirement.

Please complete the application that can be found here and submit to the West Virginia PTA Office.  A check in the amount above must be included with the nomination form to receive the pin.
