Executive Board

Libba Alden


My name is Libba Alden and I have three girls, all of whom are at Percy Priest this year.  JuJu is in 4th grade, Carter is in 2nd and Alice is in Kindergarten. I joined the PPE Executive Board because I wanted to take an active role in my children’s elementary school experience and give back to the community that is serving them so well.  In my professional life, I work for a consulting firm that assists nonprofit businesses with fundraising and marketing for its clients.  My favorite PPE memory is the Spring Sing. I loved watching all the children sing together as a school in front of all the teachers, faculty, and parents.

After volunteering last year I wanted to do more and I especially love meeting new wonderful people every day through this work. Outside of helping the PTO I am a Marketing Director for a biotech company and travel for work (and fun!) often. My favorite PPE memory (so far) was Spring Sing 2023 because it was a beautiful morning with laughs, great singing, and proud kiddos.
