The Ohio State University was always Peyton’s first choice for college, but that wasn’t always the case.

She fell in love with the campus, buildings, and the city of Columbus. Peyton says, “I am motivated and blessed to have done well and achieved a lot in school, but I am just as determined outside the classroom. I know that Ohio State will provide me the opportunities to achieve this. I am thankful for the scholarship opportunity that the Naples Buckeyes have given me to achieve my dream.”
