Ford-Coleman Endowed Scholarship Fund
The Ford-Coleman Scholarship was created in June 2005 to honor the donor’s mother, Mamie Ford Coleman, and in memory of her father, Curtis Everett Coleman. Mamie Ford Coleman worked at the South Carolina Tax Commission for more than twenty-seven years. The late Mr. Coleman received his undergraduate degree from the University of South Carolina in 1947, and his law degree from the University in 1948. Mr. Coleman worked at the Internal Revenue Service for more than 24 years and was the recipient of the Albert Gallatin Award, the highest award presented to an employee of the U.S. Treasury Department for outstanding career service. The Scholarship is to be awarded to a student with a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher, on the basis of academic merit.
