Northshore Council PTSA held its annual Spring Recognition Breakfast on Thursday, June 6, 2019, at McMenamin's Anderson School in Bothell. The event celebrates the work of PTAs throughout Northshore as well as this year's amazing volunteers and award recipients district-wide. Guests included representatives from Northshore PTAs, their award recipients and honored guests, district officials, school board members, and community partners.
Many thanks to North Creek High School's instrumental music program students and director Deborah Montague for providing wonderful performances during breakfast.
Special thanks to keynote speaker, Janet Harvey, MCC, who offered an inspiring presentation about leadership and the power and value of staying true to one self.
