Photo Caption: On June 20, 2006, the Corporation for National and Community Service honored Vernon Becker with a 2006 Spirit of Service Award for his hard work and dedication as an outstanding Senior Corps Foster Grandparent Volunteer. Prior to signing on as a Foster Grandparent seven years ago, Mr. Becker was a writer, director, and producer of educational films. During his first four years of volunteering, he was assigned to the Family Support and Visitation Center, where he monitored and supervised court-ordered visits between children in the foster care system and their biological parents. He drew on his wealth of knowledge and experience to hold the interest of the children and staff, and he participated in training programs to develop new methods of helping the children he served. In his current assignment at Orange Center Elementary School, Mr. Becker assists kindergarten students in the English as a Second Language program. He focuses on helping the students improve their literacy and oral language skills in English and develop the necessary vocabulary to enter a mainstream classroom.
