Sept. 1, 2023—Representatives from the Cy-Fair Federal Credit Union visited the staff at Fiest Elementary School on Aug. 25 to officially announce their Adopt-a-School partnership with the campus.
CFISD’s Adopt-a-School program pairs schools with community organizations and business partners to utilize resources of the community to strengthen and enrich the quality of education for students.
Cy-Fair Federal Credit Union has not only been a long-standing advocate for CFISD as a whole but at the campus level as well.

“Our vision statement is ‘Writing good into the life stories of those around us,’” Dickey said. “We’ve been writing into the story of Fiest and they’ve been writing into ours for so long that it felt like it needed that additional formality to be able to say how proud we are to be associated with the excellence here.”
Credit union representatives provided a custom cake to the Fiest staff following the adoption ceremony in addition to handing out gift bags.

“This is amazing because this is how we feel about our community. We are all one,” Gerault said. “The more we can be a part of that whether we’re giving or receiving, it’s a mission and an amazing feeling. They’ve been a part of us for a long time so it was good to make it official.”
