Honorary Service Awards

Thirty-Second District PTA traditionally presents Honorary Service Awards at our annual Founders Day Celebration.

Scholarships provide funds for graduating high school seniors and teachers.

HSA Pins

Share in the HSA program, a continuing opportunity to honor special people and assist children and youth. Honorary Service Awards (HSA) are available to recognize the service and dedication of both individuals and organizations. They may be awarded only by PTA districts, councils, units, and the California State PTA and should be presented by duly authorized PTA representatives at PTA-sponsored meetings or at functions of allied groups.

The HSA Program includes the Honorary Service Award, Continuing Service Award, Golden Oak Service Award, Very Special Person Award and “In Memoriam and Tribute” donations to the HSA Program. A person may receive more than one of any of these awards.
