Three associate professors from Kent State University’s Shannon Rodgers and Jerry Silverman School of Fashion Design and Merchandising donated their time to design and create more than 30 costumes for a local dance troupe headed to London for the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Sherry Schofield-Tomschin, Linda Ohrn-McDaniel and Vince Quevedo completed the costumes, which will be worn by the L.I.O.N. Players, a performing arts troupe based in Akron.
