The Volunteer Auxiliary at Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital is a non-profit organization that utilizes its donations and proceeds to award scholarships to students pursuing careers in health care. This year three students were selected by the Auxiliary, each of whom was the recipient of a $4,000 scholarship.

A committee of volunteers gathered to evaluate applications from local students of the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District. Many notable students stood out for their overall school performance, community involvement and interests in making a difference in the health care industry. The following exceptional students were selected to receive this year’s honor:

  • Carmen Chen – Graduated from Langham Creek High School and plans to attend the University of Houston.
  • Meherin Huque – Graduated from Langham Creek High School and plans to attend the University of Texas.
  • Avik Som – Graduated from Cypress Falls High School and plans to attend the Johns Hopkins University.

The Volunteer Auxiliary and Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital wish the scholarship recipients and all the applicants the best of luck in their education and future professions. Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital would like to thank the Volunteer Auxiliary for their continuing support of the community, the hospital and the future generation of health care professionals.
