Parents Television Council Launches Cache Valley Chapter

Cache County resident joins growing network of chapters in Utah


LOS ANGELES (March 28, 2007) — The Parents Television Council™, the nation's most influential advocacy organization protecting children from graphic sex, violence and profanity in the media, announced Sharilee Guest as the director of the Cache Valley Chapter.  Cache Valley is the third chapter in the state of Utah joining the previously established Salt Lake City/Provo and South Utah Chapters.  Guest is helping to lead the fight against violence and indecency in both television and video games in northern Utah.


Mother of four, Guest has a personal interest in protecting the local airwaves and ensuring that appropriate programming is available to families.  "We must stand up, speak out and be heard.  We must do our part to demand the opportunity for cable choices and to end the surge of profanity, sex and violence on our airways that assaults us and our children, particularly during the family hour," said Guest.


Guest's interest is not limited to protecting the youth in her own home; she is actively involved in numerous community organizations geared towards providing opportunities and leadership to youth and families in Cache Valley and throughout the state.  Guest currently serves as PTSA President for her local middle school, Chair of the Headstart Board of Trustees, and the Cache Literacy Coalition.  She is also a founding member of the newly formed America-Israel Friendship League Utah Chapter where she oversees the Youth and Student Exchange program.  By profession Guest is a Mediator and serves as Program Coordinator for a mentoring program with Youth and Families with Promise.


Tim Winter, president of the PTC™ said, "The PTC's success lies in volunteers like Sharilee.  Her experience with the PTSA and other coalitions gives her a superb foundation on which to build local awareness of the PTC and its issues.  We proudly welcome Sharilee to the PTC grassroots leadership team and we wish her great success with her new chapter."
