WHAT OUR RECIPIENTS SAY
“The Frederick W. Fischer “Helping Hands” Scholarship through the Cuero Education Foundation enabled me to extend my education beyond the degree plan into extracurricular organizations and professional opportunities. While at Texas State University, I was selected out of a field of 500 students to compete in the National Collegiate Sales Competition where I placed as a semi-finalist, finishing in the top 16 out of 144 national competitors. In addition, I was selected to intern for 3M, a world leader in research and innovation, where I gained valuable experience within sales and analytics. I have now graduated summa cum laude from Texas State University with a B.B.A. in marketing and concentration in professional sales, and my 3M internship has extended into full time employment as a sales operations analyst. The Frederick W. Fischer “Helping Hands” Scholarship has played a critical role in my strategy to graduate debt free, and for this I am forever appreciative of the generosity of Mr. Fischer, the Cuero Education Foundation, and the community of donors.”

"I'm able to trace many of my own actions and decisions as possibilities granted by the help of the Education Foundation. Without the scholarships offered by the organization, continued education would have been financially difficult for me, creating further pressure on the already consuming task of graduating from a university. Now having graduated college, I've committed to a career in technology and a life of art and travel. As I reflect on the opportunities I've had from a place granted to me by the organization, I found it necessary to give back to provide others with those same opportunities."

"The opportunity to be a Cuero ISD Education Foundation Scholarship recipient was life-changing for both myself and my family. Through not only the scholarship but the relationships I encountered with the foundation, doors were opened that would not have been possible without their help. The impact that this scholarship had on my future was such a blessing for my life, and I know it was for all other recipients. With this scholarship comes a sense of responsibility and accountability that fueled me to be the best student-athlete that I could be at the next level, and I can't thank them enough. The Cuero community is so special in so many ways, and it is no different with the Cuero ISD Education Foundation. GO MEAN GREEN!"
