Please join us in congratulating a highly respected and beloved leader in both Springfield Council of PTAs and in our community – Becky Britton Volz! Becky has faithfully served as president of SCPTA for two years and has dedicated her whole heart and her amazing amount of energy to our mission of making every child’s potential a reality.
Becky also tirelessly served on the Proposition S Task Force for more than a year to bring a succinct and realistic plan to the voters – which passed! Becky personally attended upwards of 100 meetings all told to visit with PTA units, school communities, the school board, businesses, clubs, and associations all while representing SCPTA very well.
The SCPTA Board recently voted to bestow Becky with our highest honor – the National PTA Life Achievement Award. This award is given to a person who daily lives out his or her commitment to children and Becky is an outstanding example of this life motto.
As she wraps up her term as president, we want to thank Becky for her warm and friendly presence, her willingness to seek out advice and to keep learning through life, her loyalty and support, and her compassionate style of leadership. We look forward to her wisdom that we will thankfully continue to have as part of our board. And finally, we want to thank Becky in no small way for her gift of talent and her gift of time. We are all grateful and all better because of it. Here’s to you, Becky, with much love!!
