Region 11


Welcome from Region 11 ATPE! My name is Holli Rice and I am honored to serve as your Region11 President for the 2017-2018 school year.

As we all ease into the school year, I wanted to take a few minutes to personally welcome you back . While I know that these first few weeks can be exhausting, I hope you have all found a renewed purpose in knowing that we truly have the greatest job in the world ! As fall approaches and the membership campaign draws to a close, it is more important than ever to reach out to individuals on your campus about the benefits of ATPE. Please let me know if you need any assistance with recruiting.

Your Region 11 officers are working hard to serve you and our organization, and I am excited about the things we have planned for this year. Our first event will be October 28th. Please save the date and check your emails for event details!

As always please let me know if you have questions, comments or concerns. Looking forward to a great year !
