Teresa Maness Education Foundation (TMEF)

Making College Dreams
Come True!

TMEF is an educational foundation founded by Gina
Price at the direction of the Last Will and Testament of
Teresa Maness with funds received by the Teresa  
Maness Estate from a personal injury settlement.
Teresa Maness was an amazing southern lady who loved
chil
dren. Teresa was also intelligent, educated and well read. These attributes inspired Teresa to direct that funds received should be used to assist deserving students with the financial means to attend college. Teresa died on March 19, 2005, but her dream is alive and well.

Successful scholarship applicants are smart, highly
motivated individuals who are unable to afford the
steep costs of college tuition, books and campus life.
Applicants must have goals, be determined to succeed
and willing to work and study hard.


The TMEF affords the successful scholarship applicant
HOPE by HELP through financial aid to students who
would not otherwise be able to attend college. The
students are then able to devote their energies to the
HARD WORK necessary to attain an education as
opposed to working hard to support themselves. TMEF
believes that the inevitable result will be SUCCESS. The
successful applicant succeeds in attaining their
education and, more importantly, in making their
dreams come true.
