Opening Doors to the Future Through Education



The Tri State Educational Foundation was granted tax exempt status on July 2, 1999. The Foundation became a reality due to the efforts of Dr. Bob Ferguson, a retired superintendent, and his wife, Sylvia Ferguson, a retired teacher.

Dr. and Mrs. Ferguson are from New Albany, MS. Combined, they have served the school districts of Corinth, Columbia, Marion County, Long Beach, Pass Christian, Picayune, and Tishomingo County in Mississippi, and the Kansas City School District in Kansas. They formed the Foundation for the purpose of providing financial support to those seeking ways to better themselves through education.

Tri State Educational Foundation has a five-member Board of Directors and an Executive Director who oversees the day-to-day operations of the Foundation.
