Honorary Service Award

Every spring, the LAMV PTA Council honors individuals or organizations that have gone above and beyond in our communities to serve children and youth.  The HSA Award winner is someone who has stepped out of their own school setting to impact kids across our entire community.  These awards are given at the Council Luncheon in May.

The HSA committee is currently accepting nominations for 2014 HSA awards.  To nominate someone, please send the person’s name along with a brief note (one paragraph is fine!) explaining why they are deserving of this award.  Please also provide the name and contact info of either the person doing the nominating or someone else who the committee may contact to confidentially follow up on the nominee’s accomplishments.

You may email any of the committee members with your nomination(s) or questions.  Feel free to nominate as many people as you think qualify.  Deadline for nominations is Tuesday, April 1st.

Thank you!
