Rep. Frank J. Becker Scholarship Winner
I would like to officially announce the 2010 Frank J. Becker scholarship winner, Mary Beth Lyons! Mary Beth is a recent Graduate of Lynbrook H.S. and will be attending Lehigh University in the Fall. The scholarship was started upon my Grandfathers' retirement from the United States House of Representatives. Since its inception dozens of H.S. Grads from the 4th Congressional district have benefited from this scholarship and have been able to pay for school. Frank J.Becker was a self-made man who started a successful business during the depression, which still survives today, and served his community as an Assemblyman and Congressman. He was a man of strong values, virtues and morals. He believed in the American Dream and lived it every day. This scholarship was created in his tradition of Public Service and is represents his desire to help his community grow and prosper.
