The Foundation has launched a campaign to bring Defensive Driving to the forefront.  Maria had only three short years of driving experience and the Foundation would like to encourage better defensive driver training.  Our first initiative will be to attempt to encourage better Defensive Driver's Education. 


St. Brigid of Kildare Church has established a scholarship in Maria's honor.  The Foundation will continue to support the Maria Tiberi Scholarship so that students may be able to attend the elementary school with financial assistance.
