WATERLOO (KWWL)-- Fred Becker Elementary is Waterloo's newest school.

Monday night, the school board voted unanimously to name it after the Waterloo native who graduated from East High School in 1914.

In 1916, Becker joined the Marines, and then lost his life two years later while leading his men into battle.

The new building will house students from both Edison and Black Hawk schools.
