The Steve Francis Foundation hosted its 11th Annual Scholarship Celebration on August 2nd, 2015 at TopGolf Houston. The theme of this year’s event was “Soar to New Heights” as we look to take the Foundation to new levels and encourage our scholars to keep dreaming and achieving.  It was an honor to celebrate our four Scholars who earned college degrees and to welcome seven new Scholars to the SFF family!

It is with great joy that The Steve Francis Foundation shares the news that four of its Scholars have earned college degrees this year.  In the words of Eleanor Roosevelt, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams,” and these four SFF Scholars stayed committed to their dreams, despite many challenges that could have led them astray.  If their determination and strength is any indication of their future, we cannot wait to see what it holds for these four dreamers.
