Ohio Hi-Point Career Center recently raised over $700 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation after hosting an OHP Has Talent competition.
The Wheeler Brothers, an a cappella brother trio, bested eleven other competitors and took home the grand prize of $250. Michael “Big Mike” Robinson and Carrissa Magnuson rounded out the top three.
Matt Kemp and Dalton Worley earned honorable mention as the most unique act as they performed a neon glow-stick act.
“We had a great time,” remarked Jonathan Wheeler, the oldest of the trio, “This was a laid back atmosphere and it was a fun evening. That’s all we try to do as a singing group, is to have fun.”
Four local judges also helped make the OHP Has Talent event a success. Jason Duff, Pete Yost, Jeff Newland and Rueben Mees served as judges, offering praise and advice to the contestants.
Overall, the event raised over $700 for the JDRF, a number the OHP Has Talent committee plans to increase next year.
