I’m Connor Rizzo, a sophomore here at Joseph A. Foran High School. At Foran, I am a member of both the drama club and Key Club, and co-president of the game club. Outside of school, I perform with Pantochino Productions and play keyboard in my band Echobox. This is my first year with Mane Street Mirror, and I am excited for what it holds!
