WEIRTON — Shelley Weber, of Weirton, has been recognized with the National PTA’s Life Achievement Award, the highest honor given to Parent-Teacher Association members and leaders.

The National PTA Life Achievement Award recognizes a person who lives out his or her commitment to children on a daily basis and tirelessly advocates for children’s education, health and well-being.

Weber became active with the PTA in 2010 when her children started at Broadview Elementary. When the three Weirton elementary schools combined into one, she joined the PTA board for the inaugural year 2014-2015. She accepted this challenge and vowed to make each student’s experience a memorable one and to make memories not only for the students, but for the teachers and parents as well.

She held the role of vice president and president of the PTA at Weirton Elementary, helping to organize open houses, Santa’s Workshop, Field Week, and fundraisers for grade level field trips.

In her spare time, Weber loves to read, attend baseball and basketball games to cheer on her children. When she isn’t doing that, she is spending time with her mom, Rosalia. She is an avid sports fan of all the Pittsburgh teams. She believes whole-heartedly that family is where it all begins and ends.

Weber is the wife of Don Weber and mother of Ryan and Isabella.

National PTA is comprised of millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of parent involvement in schools.
