The mission of the Foundation is provide scholarships to young students to encourage their educational and spiritual goals for Christian growth.

Teressa Rosalind French was born in San Diego, California, to Vice Admiral William and Monika French. As a military child, she moved frequently with her family across the world, living in nine different locations! One such place was San Diego, CA, where Teressa accepted Christ’s free gift of salvation at the Rock Church! Teressa had a wonderful sense of humor, bringing smiles and laughter wherever she went. Her gentle heart and care for young children made her the “Pied Piper” of children; they flocked to her and loved her. Teressa Rosalind French was 16 years old, living in Washington DC, when she entered heaven on January 24, 2014. She left behind her parents, Bill and Monika French, her brother, Tom, and sister-in-law, Brittney, as well as countless families and friends who loved her deeply.
