"Future Buckeyes of Kithoka Club!"

by Tiffany M Favers - Alumn '07, '09

This picture was taken while on a mission trip to visit the Kithoka Area Community Home in Meru, Kenya. We took new clothes to the kids but I didn't know about all the Ohio State stuff that had been purchased. When I saw the kids repping OSU I had to get an O-H-I-O picture. Here Derek, Boniface, Patrick and Nettie loved participating so we started a club for these future buckeyes!
