The Hailey Becker Advisory Fund was created in 2021 by Ms. Becker to fulfill some of her philanthropic objectives. Ms. Becker moved to North Aurora when she was 5 years old and graduated from West Aurora High School in 2016. In 2020, she graduated with her Bachelor’s in Metallurgical Engineering from The University of Alabama where she also enjoyed playing the saxophone, boxing, and spending time outdoors. She is currently continuing her education at Michigan State University, pursuing a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering. Growing up in Aurora taught Ms. Becker the importance of community involvement. Since moving to Lansing, MI, she has been volunteering with a local nonprofit in a community garden and hopes to expand her involvement to youth outreach and the arts. Outside of volunteering, Ms. Becker loves to spend time with her cat, Gert and teach her new tricks.
