In the Patriot Spotlight: Susan Becker

September 02, 2018

Student Spotlight: Susan Becker
By Paige Moore
Each week a Clarkson High School student or Clarkson Public Schools staff member will be randomly selected to be "In the Patriot Spotlight." This week’s Patriot is Susan Becker. Susan is the middle school reading teacher as well as a para.

Susan is married to her high school sweetheart (Bryan), who is also a teacher here at Clarkson. Susan and Bryan have four children. Their oldest, Brigham, works as a high school science teacher and athletic trainer in Omaha. Their second child is Alyssa. Alyssa is a 5th grade teacher at McCool Junction. Their third child is Kaylee. Kaylee works at Cornerstone Bank in York as an accountant. Finally, their youngest is Colby. Colby is currently going to college at UNL to become a sports broadcaster. Susan also has three grandchildren: Myles, Aleigha, and Camden. 

Susan went to high school in Holcomb, Kansas. Her family moved there when she was a freshman. She participated in a few activities in high school which included volleyball, basketball, and FHA (Future Homemakers of America). FHA is now called FCCLA.

After living her whole life in Kansas, even experiencing a tornado in 2001, Susan and her husband decided to move to Nebraska in 2001. They moved back for jobs and to move closer to family. They wanted to be closer to York so they could go to the Church of Christ.

Susan’s hobbies include golfing and visiting her children. She has just recently started golfing, and she likes how relaxing it is. She spends her weeks working and the weekends traveling to see her children. Susan’s dream vacation would be to go somewhere tropical. She would love going to Hawaii or Cancun with just her husband. 

She enjoys the students at Clarkson because she likes the way everyone gets along and encourages one another. If she would give any advice to a student it would be: “make sure you learn how to study and always keep on top of your grades so that a bad test grade won’t fail you.”
