A portrait of Martin Luther King, Jr. painted by Kirkland alumna Raye Leith K'78 (aka Deb Osserman) recently appeared in a photograph in The New York Times accompanying an article about  the Obama family's volunteer service at SOME (So That Others Might Eat) in Washington, D.C. on the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. In the photograph, the president is shown next to the portrait as he is greeting and serving the homeless. Leith recently donated the painting to the service organization which works to serve the needs of the homeless. To view the article, visit www.rayeleith.com.
