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 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 2ndTo stay up-to-date on everything happening at the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation, make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn!  Today’s Students, Tomorrow’s Future!
