Ties & Tiaras
March 9, 2017
Ties & Tiaras, held every spring, celebrates the dedicated volunteers who mentor Katy ISD students through our KEYS Mentoring Program and who have supported the KEYS Scholarship Fund. The event commemorates the many hours mentors spend making a difference in a child's life and every dollar donated to make a brighter future for KEYS students.
Ties & Tiaras is held at a local venue and is a night of delicious fare and student entertainment from every
Katy ISD high school. The festivities include the introduction of our Mentors of the Year. Guests attending get the opportunity to meet the student artists who create the yearly KEYS Commemorative Artwork that is awarded to our Silver, Gold and Platinum sponsors.

Brazos Valley Schools Credit Union has committed to supporting Katy ISD students by becoming a KEYS Scholarship Platinum Sponsor. "Employees at Brazos Valley Schools Credit Union have supported KEYS for more than twelve years and know the direct benefit that students are getting from the program," said Joe Simmons, president and CEO of BVSCU. "It felt natural for us to join forces to help support these students as they enter post-secondary schools." Founded in 1954, Brazos Valley Schools Credit Union serves educators, faculty, staff, their families and other qualified individuals within a 13-county area of Texas. |
||When we began our KEYS Scholarship fundraising campaign,
Firethorne was our first platinum sponsor, proving that it's not just a great neighborhood: it's also a great neighbor. Whether donating solar kits, sponsoring golf tournaments, supporting our Food for Families initiative, or helping out the Katy ISD Future Farmers of America program, our friends at Firethorne always know how to make things better for kids. And they not only support our KEYS Scholarship Program, their employees support KEYS children by sharing an hour each week with them as mentors. |
A longstanding sponsor of the KEYS Scholarship Fund,
Members Choice Credit Union is once again showing their faithful support of Katy ISD students. A valuable partner with our district for many years, Members Choice sponsors a student intern through the PACE program at Miller Career & Technology Center. Employees teach Junior Achievement and read to elementary children during Promise to Read. Bank executive Kelly Gaines serves on the Partners in Education Advisory Board.
Memorial Hermann Hospital's faithful support of Katy ISD proves that it's not just a hospital that makes Katy well, it makes Katy thankful. A flagship and regional sponsor of the KEYS Scholarship fund, Memorial Hermann employees read to kids, teach babysitting classes, provide job shadowing opportunities for high school students and CEO Jim Parisi serves on the Partners in Education Advisory Board. And for all of that and more, we are thankful indeed.
