Remarkable teacher remembered in a remarkable way.
Last year, Austin Academy lost a beloved and wonderful teacher, Mrs. Becky Brown. Students and teachers raised $1400 to donate to her favorite charity, Heifer International. We are pleased to note that they have shared her story on their When Cows Fly page to mark the 1 year anniversary of her passing.
