47th Annual Americana Awards


Dear Friends of Cypress College,

Thank you for your generous support of Cypress College students during the 47th Annual Americana Awards!

Your gifts through the silent and live auctions and fund-a-need make a lasting impact on our students. Watch Mireya’s video below.

Congratulations to our Man of the Year Chief Brian Fennessy and all of our honorees! You can view their videos below (by clicking on their names) along with the entire Americana livestream recording.

We still need your help. Please make a direct contribution to help students like Mireya through Fund-A-Need and the Americana Honoree Scholarship.

With gratitude,
Cypress College Foundation Board & Staff
