ANNE-MARIE BECKER believes that “Woman is not herself only. She is all that she sees, all that floes into her from a thousand sources… she is the land, the lift of its mountain lines, the reach of its valleys.” (Mary Austin) Anne-Marie maintains a superior academic record in honors classes and has received awards in science, history and English. She has also been recognized for her work in Girl Scouts, receiving the Senior Girl Scout Service Bar and Silver Award. Anne-Marie is the president of the Carlmont Interact, a Rotary- sponsored, community service club, as well as a member of the Youth Service Team of the Volunteer Center of San Mateo County. Out of her love for the wilderness, she served as a Junior Ranger at Huddart Park, spent three summers as a leader in training at Adventure Camp and one summer as a full-time staff member. She helped plan a countywide service project for earth Day. Yosemite National Institute selected Anne-Marie as an Armstrong Scholar for a women’s wilderness leadership program in honor of Joie Armstrong. For two years Anne-Marie spent spring break on house building trips in Mexico, about which she wrote and published an essay in the San Mateo County Times (8/29/01).
