"Razorback Gymnastics is on the hunt to find Razorback Heroes! Do you know someone who is making a difference in the lives of others during this unprecedented time or someone who is going above and beyond in their local community? From those on the frontlines to those going the extra mile for a family member, friend, or stranger in need. Razorback fans will have the opportunity to nominate a Razorback Hero for a chance to have them recognized during the meet."
When Katie Becker saw this posted on the Instagram account for Razorback Gymnastics, she immediately thought of her mother and I.C. teacher, Mandy Becker. “Last week, the [G]ymbacks’ insta page was seeking nominations for community heroes. They describe a community hero as someone who is going above and beyond for others during the pandemic. Of course, my mom was the first person I thought of. I went out on a limb and nominated her[.]” In her Facebook post, Katie went on to describe how she was not alerted of her mother’s win until the moment they announced her name, but she knew so many people would agree with the Gymbacks’ description of a “Razorback Hero”.
Katie went on to post, "The education profession is a very intrinsically rewarding profession, we don’t do it for the fame or fortune. From the very beginning of the pandemic, I have watched my mom exhaust herself creating engaging lessons, getting supplies to students, teaching herself the ways of virtual teaching, and teaching virtually AND in person this school year. Of course I’m biased, but she is the greatest example of putting her students first, and that is one of the greatest lessons she has taught me about being an educator. She has influenced the teacher I am and strive to be. I hope I am half the teacher she is. I am forever proud to be called her daughter!”
Help us celebrate Mrs. Becker and all those who go above and beyond in the community! Thank you to our Razorback Gymnastics team and Coach Jordyn Wieber for this opportunity and for the recognition our Mrs. Becker deserves! #Gymbacks #CommunityHero #TeachersSaveLives #ImagineICFS https://arkansasrazorbacks.com/nominate-a-razorback-community-hero/"
