On October 17, 2019, the Foundation will host the next Salute to the Stars. For the past 21 years, this event has recognized CFISD teacher of the year honorees. It all began in 1998 with former superintendent, Richard Berry’s vision. His idea was to spotlight the school district’s brightest teachers while simultaneously raising money for the Foundation. Today, Salute to the Stars is one of our major fundraising events of the year. Each campus principal chooses a Teacher of the Year for their outstanding dedication in providing valuable instruction to students. Paraeducators and support staff are also honored for their notable work at their respective schools. Continue reading Salute to the Stars 2019

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.
The annual reception honors current scholarship recipients and gives the recipients and their families an opportunity to celebrate the honor they have received. Likewise, it is an opportunity to thank our donors for their generosity and support. Bringing recipients and donors together is a great way to look to the future while also appreciating the past. In fact, 2008 CFEF Scholarship Recipient David Claros will be the guest speaker at the reception. Recognizing past recipients gives current recipients the chance to hear firsthand how recipients have benefitted from their scholarships.
The transition from high school to college is not an easy one for most students. Increased intensity of study, living away from home, and balancing multiple responsibilities is difficult in the beginning as many students adjust to a much different life. To ease this formative transition, the Foundation provides mentors to our scholarship recipients to help them navigate their freshman year of college. We are looking forward to our Scholarship Recipient & Donor Reception at The Berry Center on August 2nd!
