It is with great sadness we mourn the loss of our friend, Marni Berkowitz Kaner, who passed peacefully in her sleep last night. Marni was an inspiration and mentor to many of us in PTA...her presence will be greatly missed across RISD, North Texas and beyond.
We love you Marni. Thank you.... ❤️ #RISDCouncilofPTAs

risd pta angel membership program renamed to honor founder marni kaner

On Thursday, September 10th, the Richardson ISD Council of PTAs Executive Board held a special meeting to pass a motion in honor of our dear friend and former Parliamentarian Marni Berkowitz Kaner. We were joined by a few of our RISD school board members attending this historic Council board meeting as guests. The sole agenda item of this special meeting: renaming our current Angel membership program to The RISD Council of PTAs Angel Membership Program in Honor of Marni Kaner. You can watch the meeting proceedings here:


We are so grateful to Marni for founding and establishing Angel memberships back in 2013. She even helped Councils across Texas establish their own Angel membership programs!


Since that time, our Angel membership program has added just over 10,000 PTA MEMBERSHIPS TO RISD PTAs!! What an amazing impact your vision has made Marni! This name change is our way of acknowledging your legacy, your hard work, your dedication, and your VOICE encouraging everyone to continue supporting Marni's Angels!


To us, the moniker Marni's Angels just fits, and well, you being the warrior woman behind it all totally fits too.... We love you Marni...Always in our hearts ❤️❤️❤️❤️


Thank you Marni Kaner! In your name, we will continue to #BacktheFuture and #MarnisAngels


Support Marni's Angels by joining now!
