Introducing Our New Social Media Manager – Oluwatomiwa “Tomi” Kosko
Joining the Forman S. Acton Educational Foundation was an easy decision for Oluwatomiwa “Tomi” Kosko.
Not only would he be a part of an organization that’s working to change the lives of youths in Salem every day, but he’d be partially responsible for making sure everyone knows about all the opportunities the foundation offers.
Taking over as the foundation’s new social media manager, Tomi is responsible for developing and sharing news, information and updates on the Forman S. Acton Educational Foundation’s social media pages of Facebook and Instagram. He’ll be spreading the word about the foundation’s scholarships, grants, college savings accounts and programming services, and also, if anyone has any questions about what those programs entail, Tomi will be available on social media to provide answers and direct people to the right place.
Along with his role as social media manager, Tomi is doing double duty as he finishes up his Master’s Degree in Strategic Communications at Liberty University. He graduated with an undergraduate degree in Digital Media from Liberty in 2016 and is planning to finish up his Master’s in the spring of 2018.
And while it may seem like Tomi has taken a traditional path to a career in communications, his journey from his upbringing to working with the Acton Foundation has been anything but ordinary.
Tomi was Born in Lagos, Nigeria, and raised in London, England and Miramar, Florida. Not only is he an international traveler and skilled communications and social media expert, but Tomi was also a Division I soccer player for the Liberty Flames. Today, he continues his passion for the sport as a youth soccer coach for the Germantown Soccer Club in Philadelphia.
But overall, what makes Tomi want to be a part of the team at the Acton Foundation is seeing how much of a difference the organization is making in the lives of the students of Salem.
“I hope that audiences will realize that Forman S. Acton Educational Foundation genuinely cares about students they are trying to reach,” said Tomi. “There are people working tirelessly behind the scenes to make things happen.”
