At Cy-Fair Hospital, our Volunteers make an impact not only on health care today by the help they provide day in and day out at the hospital, but also on the health care of the future by supporting the health care professionals of tomorrow through their scholarship program.
Each year, the Volunteers raise money through bake sales, contests, gift shop sales, and other events. These proceeds go towards the Volunteer Auxiliary Scholarship Fund. Then, local graduates who are going into health care are encouraged to apply to receive a scholarship towards their studies.
This year, four teens were chosen, and each received a $3,000 scholarship. Thien-An Nguyen, who graduated from Cypress Ridge High School and plans to attend the University of Texas to study pharmacy; Maryiam Saifuddin, who graduated from Cypress Springs High School and plans to attend the University of Chicago to study biology; Caitlin O’Brien who graduated from Cypress Creek High School and plans to attend the University of Texas to study biology; and Dayron Rodriguez, who graduated from Cypress Springs High School and plans to attend the University of Texas to study biochemistry, were this year’s recipients.
“As an Auxiliary, we are very proud to be able to grant these scholarships to deserving students each year,” says Toni Wessley, Auxiliary president. “Aside from caring for our patients, the hospital, and guests who come into our hospital everyday, awarding these scholarships is one of the main purposes of the Auxiliary.”
