The Tanya Clavey Memorial Foundation is a not-for-profit organization established by one police officer in an effort to provide tuition assistance to upcoming police officers. The foundation selects a motivated student that is doing well academically but may be struggling to raise tuition money for the Law Enforcement Academy. The Tanya Clavey Memorial scholarship is available to a Manatee County high school student or alumni who wants to become a Police Officer and make a positive difference in our community. The gentleman who started the foundation is Tanya’s brother, Adam Spatafora, a Deputy Sheriff with the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office. The scholarship is presented in honor of the memory of Tanya M. Clavey, the victim of a DUI crash.
