A Step Above: A Step Above – Brianna Becker

Faith Lutheran High School
Class of 2013

A winning golf game isn’t about sinking a hole in one every time. It’s about discipline, consistency and follow through, all qualities that are exemplified by Faith Lutheran High School senior and championship golfer Brianna Becker. With unbridled optimism, intensive practice and the most serious focus, she’s turned a passion for the game into a scholarship to the University of Hawaii, but her dreams don’t stop there. Brianna isn’t setting any limits, because she knows any achievement she can imagine is possible when she’s got faith, family and the will to succeed on her side. That kind of boundless ambition helps elevate Brianna Becker to – A Step Above.

Accomplishments Most Proud Of: “I am most proud of signing my national letter of intent to the University of Hawaii and winning the individual state championship. I have worked so hard for these past nine years to get a golf scholarship for college. After signing to go to Hawaii, it showed that all my hard work paid off! Winning the state championship was also a huge goal of mine. Since it was my senior year, my goal was to actually win a state tournament. I worked so hard for this state tournament and it was such a great feeling to actually win it!”

Brianna Looks Up To: “I look up to my mom and dad. They have always worked hard to give my sister and I the best things in life and they do so much for us. They always help me with golf, whether it’s taking me to lessons or driving me to tournaments. They have sent me to good schools and they have helped me a lot in life. I am very thankful for both of them.”

Part of the Solution: “A key issue facing young adults today is they don’t get involved in something productive like sports, theater, or other extracurricular activities. People who are involved in extracurricular activities usually do better in school and are less likely to get in trouble. I would encourage all students to get involved in something after school.”
