Columbus - 
State Senator Scott Oelslager (R- North Canton) was recently appointed to the Board of Trustees for the Ohio Tuition Trust Authority (OTTA) by Senate President Tom Niehaus (R-New Richmond). Oelslager also served on the OTTA Board during some of his previous terms in the Ohio Senate and Ohio House. "I am honored to once again serve on the OTTA Board," Oelslager said. "As the Legislature and Ohio's colleges and universities continue our efforts to keep higher education affordable for all Ohioans, the OTTA provides families with important planning information as they prepare for a child's future educational needs." "Senator Oelslager has long been an advocate for helping Ohio's children and families achieve their dream of a quality college education. His experience and desire to see students succeed will certainly be an asset for the OTTA Board," Niehaus said. The OTTA was established in 1989 and is a state agency within the Ohio Board of Regents that administers Ohio's college savings program. Ohio was one of the first states to offer a 529 Plan, a tax-advantaged college savings program that has fast become one of the most popular ways to save for college.
