CFEF SCHOLARSHIP PROVIDED MORE THAN FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR DEENA MORGAN
It was Senior Awards Night, May 1995, and Deena Morgan made her way on stage to accept Cypress Creek High School’s awards for outstanding efforts in Spanish and Calculus. Then she was asked to stay.
In her short 18 years of life Deena had already endured great pain and seemingly insurmountable challenges brought on by a fight with Hodgkin’s disease. She was diagnosed when she was in fifth grade at Matzke Elementary School and declared cancer-free one year later after a horrendous battle with chemotherapy.
