Ricardo Obasare Awarded a 2011 Actuarial Diversity Scholarship

Congratulations to Ricardo Obasare '12, for winning a 2011 Actuarial Diversity Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded annually by the Actuarial Foundation, which has this to say on their website:

"These scholarships not only offset the cost of education for students, but are prestigious honors. Scholarship recipients are selected by representatives of the actuarial profession, who may one day be their peers."
