MARCH HIGHLIGHTS - PACT Town Hall in Parma Heights: Tuesday, March 6 was a great informational night for residents of Parma Heights. The town hall meeting, sponsored by PACT (Police and Community Together), focused on opportunities available in the Parma Heights area. Representatives from PACT, Parma Heights Library, Tri-City MyCom, Parma Area Young Professionals and the Parma Area Family Collaborative shared about their programs.

 Strong Women, Strong Leader Award: We congratulate Zahraa Alribeawi, Parma Senior High School senior, for receiving the Strong Women, Strong Leader award at Cleveland State University on March 1, 2018. Zahraa takes classes at CSU and was recognized for her outstanding leadership abilities. Out of the five women who received the award, Zahraa, at 17 years old, was the youngest! Zahraa is a member of the Tri-City MyCom Youth Council. A well-deserved honor!
