Hearing first hand stories of financial need from Lone Star College-CyFair students inspired Scott and Marian Liebling to establish a scholarship that is helping six students achieve their academic goals this year.
The Didwell-Liebling Opportunity Scholarship was established in honor of the couple’s parents and family and earmarked for students in Government, Political Science and History.
Six inaugural recipients were awarded scholarships: four in fall 2012 including Monica Cuerno a future chemical engineer, Halie Devereaux a future pediatric ICU nurse, Ali Fawaz, a future a cardiac surgeon and Rebeca Perales, a future petroleum engineer and two in spring 2013 including Hein Lai, a future nurse and Frederique Moultin, a future mechanical engineer.
“These are incredibly intelligent and ambitious students who have not let life’s hardships deter them,” said Marian Liebling. “They are truly an inspiration to us, and we feel most fortunate to be able to help them in some small way.”
LSC-CyFair offers many scholarship opportunities with varying requirements and award amounts thanks to the generosity of community partners from area individuals such as the Lieblings to numerous companies and organizations. The scholarship application deadline for the fall 2013 semester is April 1.
