Becky Brown
Principal at Mary Queen of the Holy Rosary School

Becky is the Principal at Mary Queen School. Throughout the year, parents are called upon to donate hand sanitizer, Clorox wipes, Lysol, Kleenex, and other similar items that were sitting in a classroom. When I called her and asked her if we could come and get this out and donate to St. JOSEPH Hospital, she immediately jumped on it and even asked for more donations. We wound up taking an entire truck bed over to the hospital. It was amazing. She also organized a daily breakfast and lunch for free for any child under 18 to come and pick up at Mary Queen. Not only is she giving of herself during the pandemic but also every day at school to our kids. I have never met such a humble, thoughtful, kind person as Becky Brown. I love that my kids get to be a part of her community and to watch how she treats people.
