Congratulations Becky! I know of no other individual who deserve this as much as you do. It is an honor to know you and experience the passion you have for our community. Thank you for all you do for our youths!

Congratulations Becky! I took your pre-natal class 20 years ago with my first born. I am happy to say that I am still friends with two of the women I met in your class. You have played an amazing role in helping new moms form deep, rewarding bonds that have been a great means of having community in a society that is lacking in community values!

Thanks so much for the warmth and caring you brought to the Addison, Jordan, and Paly communities. I hadn't heard about your work with the Betty Wright Swim Center, but it is so characteristic of the work I knew when I met you doing prenatal classes 20+ years ago, right through your work with high school students the last several years. Thank you so much! We've been very fortunate to have you as a member of our communities!

Dear Ms. Beacom:
My name is Beverly and I am the Community Liaison/Advocate Serenity Maternal Infant Health Program. We are a program through the State of Michigan and Medicaid, we provide services and resoureces for low-income moms, babies and moms to be. I attended a conference and picked up a brochure entitled "New Mom Tips". I love this brochure and I believe it would very informative to these young girls that we see.
I would love to use this in our program but after calling the company that prints them discovered the cost is more than my budget allows. My question to you is "May we copy and use?".
