Today is the National PTA FOUNDERS' DAY

Today is National PTA Founders' Day.
Mariettan Alice McLellan Birney  (1858-1907) co-founded the Parents Teachers Association (PTA)  in 1897.  There is a big memorial in front of  the Old Marietta High School, now Marietta Junior High School called the Birney Memorial in her honor.  She lived on Kennesaw Avenue.  There is a plaque in front of the house she lived in.

She was about the only claim to fame Marietta  had until Billy Joe Royal came along.
