Kudos to the M-A students! I encountered them several times over the last few weeks at Trader Joe's and the Safeway in Sharon Heights. It was chilly outside, but the students were in good cheer and were very friendly. I was happy to support the program. It's great to see Coach Parks' program continue after so many years.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
