Achieve Today. Excel Tomorrow. 2016 - 2021 Strategic Plan

Judy Beckham

Judy earned a teaching certificate and after being a stay-at-home mom, began teaching in the Arlington ISD in 1966. She taught at both Nichols Junior High and Ferguson Junior High and then led the K-12 art program from 1973 until she retired. During her career she was actively involved and recognized in numerous art education associations. A highlight was being named Outstanding Art Educator of both the Texas Art Education Association and the National Education Association. She was honored by Texas Governor Ann Richards and columnist Liz Smith when she was named as a charter recipient of the Legacy of Women Award in 1994. In 2001, the Arlington ISD honored Judy by naming Beckham Elementary School in her honor.
