    Dr. Cleaver was one of the best principals I've ever had. She was so strong and was so into Conkwright. She loved CMS and would do anything for that school.

    Dr. CLeaver was my leader and my friend. I admired her strength, compassion, and her love for kids and animals. She was a champion for the weaker of human beings as well as animals. She took broken spirits and nourished them. Whether it was her staff or her children at school, Becke loved them all. She will be missed every day at Conkwright from now until the school closes its doors.

    I was glad to call Becke my friend. She was passionate about everything she did. I was convinced that if Becke was involved, anything was possible. I pray for her family in this time of need. You will be missed so many ways, --Brian

    Beyond her caring and dedication to her students, Becke was also a founding member of local Porsche Club, and many grew to love her enthusiasm and easy smile in these activities. She was a very gentle, kind, and caring person, and it was truly a blessing to spend snippets of my time and life with her. She will be sorely missed by many.

    Dr.Cleaver was a very wonderful and successful person whom I'll always remember. Us at Conkwright will slowly cope with her passing.
