Hospital Becomes Sustaining Partner with Frisco Education FoundationCentennial Medical Center, part of Tenet Healthcare, demonstrated its care and concern for the future of Frisco this week by agreeing to become a sustaining partner for the Frisco Education Foundation for the next three years.

Through a $10,000 grant from Tenet Healthcare Foundation, the new hospital has stepped up to the plate as a community leader. Frisco Education Foundation Director K. Jonas is very enthusiastic about their involvement. “Centennial has invested in the future of Frisco with the support of Frisco Education Foundation. Centennial funded a scholarship last spring and has now become a sustaining partner. We are happy to work with such a community-oriented institution,” she said.

“Being the hospital in this community, it is important to be a part of the community, to contribute back to it. This community has been very good to us and we believe that education is important to everyone. We are grateful for the opportunity to participate as a sustaining partner,” Bill Henning, CEO of Centennial Medical Center, said.

Frisco Education Foundation provides scholarships to graduating Frisco seniors based on need, academic achievement, and recommendations from the community and teachers. The foundation also supports Frisco teachers with the Grants for Great Ideas program, which funds selected education enrichment programs proposed by teachers.
