Women of BECA Inc. was started in 2003 by four women who traveled together and developed a sisterhood. We decided to develop an organization to give back to the community by the way of supporting Women's related Services and Charities, and Education for our Youth. The Hallmark of our organization is our Scholarship Fund to deserving high school seniors that are pursing a career in the specified career paths of the founders – Beverly-Journalism, Edna – Criminal Justice, Connie – Journalism, and Angela- Nursing.
