North Fulton Council of PTAs President Inge Robb congratulates Georgia PTA Outstanding Principals Award winners George Freiberger from Crabapple Crossing Elementary School, Joy Schroerlucke from Holcomb Bridge Middle School, and Buck Greene from Johns Creek High School, with Dove Walker, NFC PTA secretary.
Several Milton schools won awards at the recent Georgia PTA Convention Leadership and Training conference, bringing further prestige to lauded area institutions.
Crabapple Crossing Elementary School Principal George Freiberger was named an Outstanding Principal, one of just four in the state. The award recognizes principals who provide excellent support of local PTAs by personally participating in the organization and its programs and by encouraging parent participation.
Additionally, Northwestern Middle School was named first place in Georgia PTA Outstanding Units for middle schools, and Milton High placed second for high schools.
Milton also received the Georgia PTA Visionary Award for demonstrating an "above and beyond" approach to addressing and resolving community issues and concerns.
Finally, out of the 26 Georgia PTA councils, the North Fulton Council of PTAs (NFC PTA) was one of two councils with a perfect score and ultimately received the Georgia PTA Top Council Exemplary Award. During the 2012-2013 school year, NFC PTA was the largest PTA membership council within Georgia, representing nearly 15 percent of all Georgia PTA membership.
