Patti Becker McFee was selected as the namesake for Elementary #47. Patti worked in the district for 28 years. She worked as a paraprofessional at Matzke Elementary for eight years and spent the remaining 20 years in the district’s human resources office. Patti was named director for certification and records and then director of human resource systems before she retired in February 1995. Patti was instrumental in computerizing personnel records so that records could be shared with payroll and financial services. She also created a tracking system that paired personnel/applicant data with certification and other necessary information. She and her husband, James, have two children, Kerry and Kellye, who are both Cy-Fair High School graduates.
