Our Board

The board would love to hear from you at board@dsca.org!

Becky Welborn

Vision and creativity- two things of which I do not inherently possess outside of the Holy Spirit. God knows this and has given inspiration from the initial vision of creating a Classical Christian school to future vision of growth and excellence for His glory. The vision of DSCA is God-given collectively through its Board, and it is an honor to be a part of that process.

As Head of School, I have a non-voting seat, but serve an important role as a voice for the community, families, students, and staff. I am confident in the work God is doing through DSCA and look forward to seeing the fruit for His kingdom.

James McCann – Facilities Chair

Jenny and I have been blessed to live in Dripping Springs and to raise our children with other faithful families at DSCA. We both grew up around Austin, Jenny in the Lake Travis area and I spent my early years mostly in South Austin moving to Elgin before High School. My grandparents lived in the old house that used to sit where the post office sits now.  I remember many holidays and summers spent in Dripping Springs as a child and have always cherished those memories. After we were married and Jenny had graduated from culinary school in New York, we moved back to central Texas. We found a small house north of Dripping Springs and moved here in February 2002. Our family has taken an educational journey including public school, Classical homeschooling, a larger Classical Christian private school in Austin and finally the Lord led us to Dripping Springs Christian Academy. We have been at DSCA going on four years now, with our oldest Kate graduating May 2018; Emily is currently a Junior, and Zechariah is in second grade.

I have a BS in Architectural Engineering from UT Austin, am licensed as a civil engineer specializing in land development, and have my own small business.  We attend the Dripping Springs United Methodist Church and Kate, Emily, and I were baptized in 2007, and Zechariah in 2010 (Jenny was baptized as an infant).  I have served on the Building Subcommittee and helped in getting a Planned Development District approved for the church.  I have served as chairman on the Staff/Parish Relations Committee and Insurance Subcommittee, served as vice-chair and chair of the Wild Game Dinner, and facilitated two years of the Cokesbury Disciple Bible Study.

We are very grateful to have our children in a loving Christian environment with teachers and staff specifically devoted to raising Ambassadors for Christ.  Seeing all these beautiful children learn while enjoying and respecting one another is such a testament to the faithfulness of this wonderful community and the work He is doing in this school.  As such I am grateful and humbled to help this school in its mission and vision and look forward to what He holds for us in the future.

Katia George – Treasurer

I am thankful to have the opportunity to be part of DSCA. I was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico; most of my family lives there. In 2009 I met Michael, my husband, in Mexico City. We have lived in the Bee Cave/Austin area since 2011. We have two children: Aleksander (6) and Natasha (4). This is our second year at DSCA. We did a long and careful search and we couldn’t be happier with our school choice; we feel blessed by having found such a great environment for our kids education.  I have a Bachelors degree in Economics (I.T.E.S.M.) and a MBA (IPADE). I worked 13 years in Procter & Gamble in Finance in different countries and 5 years in Dannon as CFO.  Our home is multicultural: American, Mexican and Russian. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, exercising, watching movies and helping others.

Nancy Tuuk – Board Chair

My husband and I moved from Illinois to Austin in 1990.  When we came we had two young children and then God grew our family to include ten children who currently range in age from 31 years old to 7 years old.  Six of our children are grown and we now have six grandchildren. We attend Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Austin. I spent nearly 25 years homeschooling our children and then we found DSCA. Our four youngest children attend DSCA, two in high school, one in middle school, and one in first grade. We are grateful to have found a school, like DSCA, which has the same values and goals we have for our children. It is a great extension of our previous homeschooling which adds all the benefits of a school, providing academic excellence combined with the interaction of peers and loving teachers and staff who pour into the children’s lives.  

I am excited to be able to serve on the board and to help further the mission of DSCA.  As we invest in the children, their families, the staff, and the supporters, we are investing in God’s kingdom here in our community and beyond.
