The Harlandale ISD Council of PTAs held its annual Founders Day Banquet at McCollum High School on Feb. 22.

For more than 50 years, the Founders Day Banquet has become a tradition at Harlandale ISD to honor the founding of the PTA and celebrate the council’s Life Members, Past Life Members and Past Presidents, who have worked tirelessly on behalf of all HISD students and campuses.

The dedicated volunteers and their families, as well as administrators and staff, enjoyed a delicious Italian dinner and were treated to musical performances by the MHS Jazz Band.

“Today is about honoring our PTAs, they’re the ones who built our PTA, they’re the ones who keep it going, and they’re the ones who continue our legacy,” MHS PTA President Josie Scales said. “All parent-teacher associations work hard every year to develop fundraisers, projects and meetings to benefit parents and students. They need to be celebrated over and over again.”

During the event, a silent auction was also held to raise money for scholarships that will benefit one senior from every HISD high school.

HISD Superintendent Rey Madrigal also attended the event and was auctioned off to Rayburn Elementary School thanks to a donation made by HISD Teacher of the Year Evelyn Bushart and her husband of $400!

Thank you PTAs for all that you do!
