The A.B. and M.E. Otokiti PSA Management, Inc. Endowed Scholarship was established in 2020 by Patrick Aliu-Otokiti, President and CEO of PSA Management, Inc., in memory of his Nigerian parents, who were champions for education. His father, Mr. A.B. Otokiti, a visionary change agent for education, and his mother, Mrs. M.E. Otokiti, an advocate for quality education believed that students deserve the opportunity and access to achieve academic success. Catalysts for improving the lives of others, Mr. and Mrs. Otokiti’s commitment to promoting education are key factors to help students improve learning in the rapidly changing global educational landscape. The A.B. and M.E. Otokiti PSA Management Endowed Scholarship provides pathways to help students bridge the gap between a desire for a quality college education and the rising cost of education.
