Welcome to our page. We are an organization thriving within the Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District (CFISD) community. Our membership is composed largely of people retired from CFISD, but also includes members from surrounding school districts. Anyone interested in education who desires to promote the objectives of the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) can be a member. Associate memberships are extended to family, friends, and people living in the community either retired or actively employed.
The purpose of Cy-FARE is to promote fellowship among members, aid in educational and civic affairs, and be actively interested in all legislation affecting the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS).
It is a pleasure to serve as the President of such a friendly and nurturing organization. Every member is valued and encouraged to share their talents and skills within Cy-FARE and the community.
Sheila Wolf, President
