Members of the Jackson Prep’s Parents and Teachers Board (PAT) include (from left, back) Ashley Pittman, Cassie Smith, Liz Mehrle, Lisa Walters, Ashley Maddux; and (seated) Stacy Deas, Mamie Hollingsworth, Laura Barbour, Shelley Gough and Christy Marion. The PAT serves as a support group for the school. The group was formed to bring a closer relationship between the home and school so parents and teachers can collaborate effectively in the education and training of students. The PAT’s annual fundraiser, Party for Prep, raises money for numerous classroom and campus enhancements as well as the school’s teacher endowment fund. All Prep parents are automatically members of the PAT.
