Rebecca Hegger

Project Program Manager/PBIS Consultant
PBIS Resource Center
Arkansas State University


Rebecca (Becky) Hegger has been with A-State since March of 2010, providing support as Project Program Manager and PBIS Consultant/Trainer. It has been a joy for her to be involved in building a resource center for PBIS! Becky earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the Missouri University of Science and Technology in 1988 and worked in that field until she and her family moved to Jonesboro from St. Louis, MO. Becky joined A-State as an evaluation assistant and helped found the A-State PBIS Resource Center. After experiencing PBIS from a parent’s point of view and having a background heavy in problem-solving, making the transition to evaluation and PBIS was a natural fit.
