Meet the Board of Directors: Sherry Skelly Griffith

We want you to get to know our Board of Directors better, since they are all here to serve you!  Let’s meet our Executive Director Sherry Skelly Griffith.

Sherry Skelly Griffith has been involved in PTA for 19 years — 15 as PTA parent and 4 as the Executive Director of California State PTA. Her favorite thing about PTA is its mission: a commitment to all children and families.

Sherry has been married for 26 years and has three children: Connor, 25, Alison, 24, and Megan, 22. As the Executive Director, she ensures that California State PTA runs smoothly. Sherry represents PTA on on various state-wide committees and oversees all of the staff and operations at the state office. 

Sherry loves kayaking, camping, hiking, travel, volunteering with foster youth, gardening, flower arranging, cooking, music concerts, and spending time with family and friends. Her advice to others is to maintain balance in your life and be kind to yourself and others. “It has been a privilege to work with leaders advancing the needs of public education and the needs of the whole child for the last 35 plus years.”
