Five years ago, Maura Binkley lost her life in a multiple victim shooting at a Tallahassee, Florida yoga studio, along with FSU faculty member, Dr. Nancy Van Vessem. Six other people were seriously wounded.
The Maura's Voice fund was established by Maura's parents, Jeff and Margaret Binkley, in memory of Maura, a young woman who dedicated her life to serving others. Maura was a senior at FSU who planned to continue the course of her generous life by participating after graduation in the Fulbright Scholarship program or Teach for America.
