After locating more than $340,000 in college scholarship money for their son (who has now completed graduate school and garnered a total of more than $500,000 in scholarships), Cynthia and Phillip McKee were flooded with requests for help from parents and students. So in 1989 they founded College Resource Materials, a family-owned and -operated company. Through their popular workshops, the McKees have helped thousands of students of all ages find the financial resources for college. Cynthia McKee has appeared on National Public Radio and many other radio and television shows. She has won numerous awards for her community and business achievements: she is a member of the San Antonio Women's Hall of Fame in the area of Business and Finance, received a Certificate of Appreciation from President and Mrs. Bush in 1991 for her community involvement, and was selected as one of ten National Hispanic Leaders by the national Telemundo Network and UltraTide. College Resource Materials is based in San Antonio, Texas.
