Scholarship Recipient starts New Tradition

The Eric Bassett Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in December, 2007 to honor Eric’s memory in a positive way by providing Cypress area students with financial assistance to pursue education after high school. 

The scholarship fund awards a $20,000 scholarship annually and is administered by the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation. 

The first scholarship was awarded in May 2008 to Eric’s Cy Falls High School classmate and team mate Blake Billings. Blake started a new tradition by presenting Eric and Ana Bassett with the tassel he received at graduation from Texas A&M University.
