Cy-Fair Federal Credit Union (Cy-Fair FCU) announced that Cheryl Price, who teaches technology and math to 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students at Emmott Elementary School, will receive one year's worth of mortgage payments totaling $24,000. 

Price was presented with the surprise award during Cy-Fair Educational Foundation’s Salute to the Stars annual gala.

“I have been a member of Cy-Fair Federal Credit Union since I was a child,” said Price.  “I am very thankful to the credit union for this tremendous gift. It will allow me to purchase my first home, something that would not have been possible before.”

The gala, which also serves as a scholarship fundraiser for the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation (CFEF), celebrates the contributions of all Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District educators and recognizes the top teachers from around the district.

Principals from each of Cy-Fair’s 86 schools nominated a Spotlight Teacher to be honored at the event. This year’s gala underwriter was the Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center. Each of the Spotlight Teachers was entered into a random drawing for the credit union’s one-year mortgage giveaway.

“Cy-Fair Federal Credit Union was originally started by and for the many outstanding educators who have helped build one of the best school districts in the country,” said Cameron Dickey, the credit union’s president and CEO. “The Spotlight Teacher Mortgage Giveaway is Cy-Fair FCU’s way of honoring our historic connection to the school district, as well as supporting and giving back to those who give so much to our local students, families, and communities.”

“Cy-Fair Federal Credit Union’s $24,000 mortgage giveaway was a life changing gift to one of our deserving teachers,” said Cy-Fair ISD Superintendent Dr. Mark Henry. "The generous gift by Cy-Fair FCU closed our Salute to the Stars gala with a bang. I am so appreciative of the Cy-Fair FCU family for their continued support of the staff and students in CFISD. We are truly blessed to have such great local business leaders supporting our mission.”

“Every time I look at my new home, I will remember the great generosity and support of Cy-Fair FCU,” said Price. “It inspires me to continue doing my best for my students each day.”
