Darnestown resident and mother Kelley Rogers is the recipient of the National PTA Life Achievement Award.

The award recognizes an individual who goes above and beyond in his or her commitment to children, who tirelessly works for the well-being of children’s health and education.

“This is the highest recognition bestowed by the PTA, and it is given only to those who have demonstrated exemplary service in support of children,” said PTA National President Otha Thornton.

Rogers has been a part of the PTA for 10 years, ever since her oldest child entered Darnestown Elementary School. She has served as a Montgomery County Council PTA Delegate serving on the Capital Improvements Taskforce, Executive President from 2007-2010, Parliamentarian, and Treasurer.

“Kelley Rogers has helped [Darnestown Elementary School] become the amazing school it is today,” said Amanda Karst, the current Executive President of Darnestown Elementary School PTA. “She is the ultimate example of service and dedication. She continues to give back to the school. She will be greatly missed once her youngest son graduates this year.”

Also, Rogers campaigned relentlessly for funding for the expansion of the Darnestown Elementary School campus.

Thornton told Rogers, “You possess such a mighty voice, and I cannot thank you enough for the work you have done and undoubtedly will continue to do.”

The award was presented to Rogers at a reception May 6.
