The Lima Kiwanis Club has recognized young musicians from all over Allen County at their 56th annual Sousa Awards.  

Band directors, parents and student musicians gathered in the Lima Masonic Center Tuesday for a celebration with music and food. One student from every high school in the county was presented with the Sousa band award, voted in by fellow students. One special student received a college scholarship for $1,000 a year.

That student was Colin Parent, a senior at Elida High School who plays the French horn.

"It's really helpful to give me the extra boost to be able to ensure that I'm able to go to college and that I can pay for it and I don't have to worry much about the money as just making sure that I'm doing what I love," said Parent.

Colin Parent will attend Miami University of Ohio to study music education and minor in film.
