Payton Romans, a student at Perry Meridian 6th Grade Academy, was a recipient of the Indiana PTA Reflections Award of Excellence in the area of music composition. Payton’s entry was a song that she wrote and performed based on the competition’s theme, “Magic in the Moment.” The song’s lyrics inspired the listener to live for today and not focus on tomorrow. Payton has been writing songs as a hobby for about four years. She and her family will attend a celebration luncheon at the state PTA convention to honor her efforts and success. Congratulations, Payton!
