O’Donel High School students had an amazing night at the Mount Pearl Youth of the Year Awards.  We had many great students nominated for awards, many were in the finals that evening.  Congratulations to all the participants and many that to the supporters who wrote letters and supported the applications.  A huge thank you to Garry Fraser and his team of organizers and judges for their skills and hard work.  A Shamrock is thrown to the City of Mount Pearl for a Gala evening that is second to none in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
