National PTA Ambassadors are champions for children. They support parent and family engagement in schools and serve as a voice for children and youth nationwide. Parent and family engagement drives the work of PTA. PTA recognizes that schools with well-structured, quality parent engagement programs experience profound benefits for students, parents, teachers, and overall school quality.
National PTA Ambassadors:
- Promote the organization’s mission and goals
- Increase public awareness of the critical importance of parents’ involvement in children’s lives and education
- Promote PTA as a resource for parents and families
- Increase the visibility of PTA at public appearances and events
For decades, decades community leaders, celebrities, legislators, and U.S. Presidents have lent their voices to National PTA to make a difference for all children. Past National PTA Ambassadors include country group Alabama, "Cosby Kids" Tempestt Bledsoe and Malcolm Jamal Warner, Clifton Davis, Fred Rogers, Lee Iacocca, Linda Ellerbee, NASCAR driver Carl Edwards, Kathy Ireland, and recording artist CeCe Peniston.
