The Cy-Fair Educational Foundation will hold its annual scholarship reception on August 2nd, 2016 from 7-9 P.M. at The Berry Center.  The reception celebrates recipients and donors for the many scholarships that our Foundation provides for students to pursue higher education.  This blog will preview this exciting upcoming event.
