    Khanh-Lien Banko is president of the Alachua County Council of PTAs and she currently sits on the Florida PTA Board of Directors.

    “In my role as ACCPTA President, I have made myself accessible and available to anyone who wants to help fulfill the mission of PTA – making every child’s potential a reality,” Banko said.

    She is an essential liaison for administration, students and parents, so that their needs reach Alachua County Public School Administrators, Alachua County School Board Members and elected representatives. She looks up to Audrey Hepburn, not only for her style and grace but her humanitarian efforts. Like Hepburn, Banko wants to use her role to spread awareness and instill change. Currently, she has teamed up with the Alachua County School Board to increase local capital outlay funding through bus tours and statewide networking. The Florida PTA tagline is “All children are our children.”

    “I start every relationship, every visit, every program and initiative remembering that I must act and find solutions that live up to that tagline.”
