Omid Azizi, Student Culture Editor
I’m Omid Azizi, back for another year of Cellar! I am now a senior at Perrysburg High school, and am looking forward to another year with the family. I’m still the same old kid that endlessly writes songs & plays hip-hop music at obnoxious volumes until the sun comes back out… Anyway, anything music and video are my thing! I hope to set a good example for the grades below me and continue to grow alongside my peers.

Hi, I’m Ricardo a new junior student here at Perrysburg High School. I recently moved from Puerto Rico to Ohio after two devastating hurricanes hit us in September and left a lot of damage.
