John Kleive's Visit


John Kleive is a Peace Corps Volunteer, Group 79, who stayed with us this weekend as he experienced the island of Savaii for the first time. He is a fellow Minnesotan from the northern city of Ely. He is the oldest Samoan volunteer, being a couple of months older than I am.

John teaches welding to second chance kids at Don Bosco School in Apia.
He is well qualified for the task. John not only was a welder, but also taught welding in a Minnesota high school before joining a French welding supply company as their welding expert. Seeing the lack of welding supplies by which to conduct his classes, John has been able to have a friend in the welding supply business ship much needed supplies to the school.
