Making lemonade from lemons. This proverbial phrase certainly applies to Rachel Becker ’19. Against the odds, the William & Mary senior has turned a challenging childhood into a compassionate mission to help others. Now, thanks in part to a Parents Fund scholarship, she is well on her way to pursuing her dream to support child and family rights.
What is the Parent & Family Council?
The Parent & Family Council (PFC) is a community of parent volunteer leaders who are dedicated to increasing parent engagement, promoting William & Mary, and strengthening the Tribe family. PFC families enhance student life and student success initiatives by giving and raising vital funds for the Parents Fund. As parent ambassadors, PFC members welcome new Tribe families and help them navigate life with a college student. Members also meet faculty and administrators, provide parent perspectives to William & Mary’s senior leadership, and learn about university initiatives and priorities.
