    Principal Musings -Do What's Best for Kids!

    Dear Bengal Families,

    I hope this finds everyone enjoying the holiday season! I am writing this on Sunday December 13 which is officially Lucy Beckham Day in the Town of Mount Pleasant. It seems like only yesterday that Ms. Beckham passed away but I believe that is because her legacy lives on in us everyday here at Lucy Beckham High School. We recently added a plaque beside her portrait in the front office and I wanted to share with those who may not be aware just how special she was and still is to us all.


    “Do what is best for kids,” is the motto Lucy Beckham embodied each day. She was a visionary who not only recognized the unique potentials in each of her students and staff, but she created avenues for them to realize those potentials and build a successful future – whatever that looked like for each individual. Ms. Beckham was honest, compassionate, and not afraid to stand firm and challenge the status quo if it meant the best for her students. She was a natural leader and a problem solver. With intuitive foresight, she spearheaded the initial plans for this school to be established. Across her four-decade career in education, she positively impacted the lives of tens of thousands of students, teachers, faculty members and families – and countless more who will attend this school. Lucy Beckham is a legend who lives on in all of our Bengal hearts. Our work at Lucy Beckham High School strives to embody what she lived for as we continue to “do what is best for kids.”

    We were disappointed to have to postpone our school dedication but we wanted to be sure that as many students, staff, families and community members could participate. We are anticipating a spring dedication if safe to do so.

    We work hard every day to do what is best for our students. As you know, we have stellar instructors that are simply masterful in teaching and learning and a staff that is second to none supporting our teachers and students. Thank you for allowing us the honor to educate and love your children!

    Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

    Your very proud principal,

    Mrs. Dassing
