"I was a part of YPPC for many years starting with my performance of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None in 2010(?) and ending in 2014 in the Masters group. Jeffryn and YPPC meant so much to me growing up, and I am so thankful to have been a part of it! Jeffryn ... I’m sorry to miss the final performance and celebration ... YPPC helped me gain my confidence, skills for speaking in front of an audience, and still helps me to this day as a 2nd grade teacher. Thank you Jeffryn for all you have done for so many!" 

~Emma Wilson
