Ties & Tiaras, Katy ISD’s fundraising event for the KEYS Scholarship Program, was hosted at Agave Road on February 24. Mentors of the Year were celebrated, corporate sponsors were honored and high school students from across the district entertained guests. This annual event is hosted to fund scholarships for graduating seniors who have participated in the district’s KEYS mentor program.

Since its inception in 2006, the KEYS Scholarship Fund has awarded a total of $61,000 to graduating KEYS seniors. KEYS – Keep Encouraging Youth toward Success – is an initiative for children on the brink of success that matches a deserving child with a caring adult for one hour per week. KEYS and KEYS Scholarships are offered by Partners in Education, the Katy ISD department that brings the community into the classroom.
