Deirdre Pierce is a wife, mother and grandmother, but equally as important –- a motivator, cheerleader for change, and a proud card carrying, active member of PTA! She have served as a local school PTA treasurer, president, school council representative, school business partner and now a Georgia PTA District Director where she is the support person for three counties. One of her most significant accomplishments, with the support of a dedicated team of parents, faculty, staff and a school board member, was advocating for the total renovation of her neighborhood high school that included a Career and Technology wing and an auditorium. The success of this advocacy effort resulted in the school board allocating funds for all high schools to have the same.
