Cypress College Foundation Awards More Than $260,000 in Scholarships

The Cypress College Foundation recognized nearly 250 exceptional students receiving more than 300 awards for a total of more than $260,000 in scholarships at the Annual Scholarship Awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 8. More than 400 family, friends, faculty, staff, and students attended the event held in Gateway Plaza in front of the campanile.

The Cypress College Foundation is a non-profit organization founded to raise money for the college through donors who care about our students. These funds are designated to assist students with scholarships and support other important college programs. Oversight of the Foundation comes from a group of dedicated volunteers serving as the Board of Directors, along with the leadership of the Cypress College president.

Cypress College Radiologic Technology graduate Crystal Neer started a scholarship to help deserving health science majors in the EOPS, CARE, and CalWORKS programs.

Thank you to our donors, faculty, staff, Cypress College President Dr. JoAnna Schilling — and, especially, our deserving students.
