Senator Kirk Watson, Texas State Senator for District 14 and former Austin mayor, sent Ms. Drinks a letter congratulating Becker on our $25,000 Target grant.  You can see the letter for yourself on the PTA Bulletin Board, and the text follows below.  What an honor to be recognized by Senator Watson.  Go Bobcats!


Dear Ms. Drinks:

Congratulations to all the students, teachers, staff and parents at Becker Elementary School on

being awarded a Target grant for $25,000.00.


I understand that you were one of 100 schools nationwide and the only school in Texas to be so

honored. The projects listed in today’s newspaper (stating) what the grant will be used for are

great investments of said funds.


Again, congratulations.



Kirk Watson
