Parker Whitney Talent Show

What a great evening!  Our Talent Show was such a huge success.  Our students worked so hard to show their talent they didn't disappoint.  The best part was seeing how much fun they had performing.  

Special thanks go out to our adult advisors Nicole Blackwell, Angela Moniz and Melissa Owen.  Without them the Talent Show wouldn't go on!  Great job Panthers!
