My name is Robert Partin of the Partin Foundation. Many of you may know me through my work with Land Tejas as Director of the “Adopt-a-School” program. Over 17 years, the program has provided classroom grants and assistance to Cy-Fair ISD children in the Stone Gate Homeowners Association Communities. During this same time period, we have provided over $1.5 Million to this program. As of the present day, the program has expanded to four other school districts throughout the surrounding Canyon Gate Communities.
The Partin Foundation is proud to announce 2 scholarships being awarded at this time:
The motto of the Partin Foundation is “Today’s Investment is a Reward in our Future.” Over the last five years, the Partin Foundation has awarded over $20,000 in college tuition and high school classroom assistance for the students of Cy-Fair ISD. This would not have been possible without the generosity of Land Tejas matching the funding of the Foundation in the spirit of working together as a community to make the program a reality.
The Partin Foundation was established in 2015 in honor of the late Deputy Darren H. Goforth (Harris County Sheriff’s Office) who was killed in the line of duty in August of the same year. Deputy Goforth was assigned to a neighborhood in the same Stone Gate Community that I call home, and he could be commonly found providing aid and protection to the citizens who call Stone Gate home.
First, the 2020 Deputy Darren H. Goforth Memorial Scholarship is being awarded to:
Ms. Camryn Sorrells of Cy-Falls High School.
Congratulations, Ms. Sorrells, and we wish you all the best in your future endeavors!
One of the most important principles which the Partin Foundation is based upon is that of Integrity. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, Integrity is defined as “firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values.” In ethics, integrity is regarded as “the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one’s actions.” In my opinion, Integrity is not something that one is born with, rather it is something learned from the mentors in our lives. A great mentor of our time recently passed away. He was the longtime Coach of Houston’s Reagan High School and HISD Athletic Director, Joe Tusa. Coach Tusa accomplished much in his life, not the least of which was imparting his wisdom to young people coming of age. The life lessons taught by Coach Tusa passed down to my first football coach – my father, Bob Partin. Without the lessons I have learned from my father, I would never have achieved the success I have experienced as one of the top Real Estate Appraisers in the industry. To that end, a new scholarship will now be established.
In honor of my father, I am proud to announce the establishment of the Bob Partin Integrity Scholarship.
The first recipient of the 2020 Bob Partin Integrity Scholarship will be:
Ms. Rylee Waldon of Cy-Falls High School.
Congratulations, Ms. Waldon, and good luck at San Diego State University this fall!
