Becca Williams is a founding member of Valor Education and founding board member of Valor Public Schools. In 2017 Valor Public Schools successfully obtained a charter to open three K-12 schools with a peak enrollment of 5,000 students in the Austin, Texas area. Valor’s distinct program offers students a full immersive education in the classical tradition, from the Great Books to advanced math and science. As of 2021 Valor has served over 1000 students and formed an impressive faculty comprised of over 100 teachers, administrators, and executives.
In 2021, 96% of parents whose children were in Valor’s programs expressed satisfaction, despite having to navigate through the difficulties of a pandemic, where a need for both in-person and distance learning emerged. Prior to aiding with the creation of Valor Becca was involved in jump starting other revolutionary education projects.
Recognizing the need for a study abroad program that captured the identity and mission of her alma mater she brought together faculty members from various disciplines to create a unique offering for students at Belmont Abbey College. The newly created program has allowed students of many backgrounds to study abroad in places such as Ireland, Italy and England under the guidance of a combination of English, history and theology professors.
Prior to pursuing work in education Becca competed professionally in stock car racing and oversaw business operations for an LLC that supported her racing. She was a finalist on the BET reality TV show Changing Lanes and holds titles for numerous achievements in stock car racing. Becca has also taught a full curriculum in first and fourth grade classrooms at one of the top charter schools in the country. A graduate of Belmont Abbey College, she holds a graduate degree in theology from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute, in Washington D.C.
