10th Anniversary MyCom Youth Voice Award Winners!

We had a wonderful dinner at the InterContinental Hotel with a variety of student performances. Two students from Parma presented awards in the Youth Voice category, Zahraa Alribeawi and Noah Utterback (both were asked to present because both were award winners in 2016).
