It is with a very heavy heart that I write
to inform you of the passing of A.W. Becker School Principal Tricia
Carlton. Ms. Carlton fought a valiant fight but has reluctantly
succumbed to her illness.
Ms. Carlton came to the District in 2014. I know that, in her brief time with us, she touched many lives throughout the Becker community, as well as around the district.
