“Teach each one, to lead one in order to make this nation a great one.” – Christiana ‘Nana’ Afotey
This scholarship was established in memory of Mrs. Fedelia Adokailey Mensah, the late mother of Christiana ‘Nana’ Afotey. Mrs. Mensah was a devout Christian, loving mother of four children and wife of more than forty years to Seth Mensah Afotey. In 2015 Mrs. Mensah lost her battle with cancer (to learn more about Mrs. Mensah’s story and the Threads by Dreads Foundation, please visit www.ThreadsByDreads.com).
