Congrats to Zharria Fowler - PYA's Youth of the Month for March 2014!

Zharria is a very bright and intelligent young lady who is always lending a helpful hand. She displays strong leadership and is the first to arrive and the last to leave. On our field trip to ADP payroll services, she asked numerous questions highlighting her interest in the workforce. Zharria is very dedicated to whatever assignment is set before her and is enthusiastic about books, proving this by always reading a book. PYA staff knows that if Zharria continues on the path that she is on, she will have a very bright future ahead of her. PYA is extremely happy to have Zharria here! Join us in congratulating Zharria!
