The Cedar Hill Education Foundation and Cedar Hill ISD Board of Trustees, administration and employees of Cedar Hill ISD wish to express their deepest condolences on the unexpected passing of Monica Kenney, a pillar of the Cedar Hill community.

Kenney, a faithful volunteer always willing to lend a helping hand, served as the President of the Cedar Hill ISD Education Foundation (CHEF) and was on the Board at the time of her passing.  

Kenney was a beloved family member by her children and many relatives, near and far. Her smile and kind demeanor will be missed by all who knew her. Kenney made an impact on her community through her work as a Senior Vice President of Commercial Lending for Frost Bank. Her expertise is dearly missed.
