Leigh Glenn (President)
I joined the PTA after being a Room Parent for several years. I wanted to be more involved in my daughter’s education and felt I could contribute more at a higher level. Serving on the PTA has given me a larger scale to not only support my child, and her individual teachers, but also contribute to the education of all our students and support our amazing team of teachers, staff, and their families. This is my fourth year serving on the PHES PTA. I will be serving as President again this year, and have also served on the Board as Vice President and Staff Appreciation Chair. My husband and I moved to Lexington in 2015 from Durham, North Carolina. We have one daughter, Chloe, in the 5th grade. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. Professionally, I work full time as a Paralegal for a Law Firm.
