Stelos Superstar: Adam Odomore

27 Jun


Thomas Dugan Raffen was an exceptional student leader and friend to many at Texas State University. His had a strong work ethic, high integrity and deep dedication to the campus and its values. In a tragic turn of events, Tommy was killed in a car accident in May of 1991. To honor his memory and continue his legacy, the Tommy Raffen Memorial Scholarship was created in 2008 to recognize a Texas State student who exhibits the optimistic enthusiasm, integrity, and pride in the university that exemplified Tommy’s college life.

Adam Odomore, the 2014 recipient of the award perfectly represents the best of Tommy’s characteristics. Adam Odomore shows class in all areas of his life – from his clothes to his attitude. He is the type of guy who will give a smile to any stranger and mean it. Hailing from Nigeria, a place Odomore says has a deep sense community, Adam has developed the type of character that’s truly one of a kind.

Adam believes in leading through serving and says his love for people has grown his passion for service. His ultimate goal is to establish a college scholarship fund for women in Africa, because he believes in what he calls “the girl effect” – if you can educate the women, you educate the whole village.

Adam is a Stelos Superstar and we are proud to honor him as our 2014 Tommy Raffen Memorial Scholarship recipient.
