Faith Academy swimmer signs with McMurry University

Faith Academy senior sprint swimmer Ashlea Beckner (seated) signs her commitment to compete for McMurry University in Abilene on May 13 during a ceremony at the Marble Falls campus. Also in attendance are her parents, Lorri (standing, left) and Bobby Beckner, and sister, Jessica. Ashlea began competing as a swimmer when she was 9. “There’s not a day I don’t swim,” she said, “except for Sundays just because the pool is closed.” Ashlea will take pre-medicine courses to be a pediatrics doctor.
