The Chris Reed Foundation strives to positively impact lives through educational and financial assistance for high school students in the Bay Area Houston region.
The Foundation inspires, emboldens, and mentors recipients seeking support to achieve their college or vocational goals, regardless of economic circumstances.
Chris Reed was one of Bay Area Houston's staunch supporters, serving on dozens of boards and committees, many in support of Clear Creek Independent School District. In 2016 he took that dedication higher, winning a seat on the CCISD Board of Trustees.
Chris was a champion for our community's youth. He held numerous leadership roles in child-focused philanthropic organizations for nearly two decades, including the Clear Creek Education Foundation, Communities in Schools, Bay Area Alliance for Youth and Families, Hope Village, Lion’s Club and several CCISD campus improvement councils and school naming committees.
Reed was often on the wrestling mat where he coached numerous local youth. His goal was to provide opportunities to lower socio-economic wrestlers. He sought to help improve self-confidence, discipline and good sportsmanship. He believed these traits led to enhanced personal responsibility, stronger reasoning skills and a healthier, happier physical and mental wellbeing. It is in this vein that the Chris Reed Foundation was formed.
