Who Is Mya Tomoto?
Tomoto is a high school senior at Shaw High School in East Cleveland.
In addition to being the valedictorian of her class, Tomoto has emerged as a philanthropic figure during the COVID-19 pandemic.
She is interested in computer science so she worked with her school district to hand out computers for students for remote learning purposes.
Tomoto also was a resource for students who had technical issues with their computers.
Mya Tomoto is an amazing young lady who also ran cross country and played the trumpet during her high school career.
The Browns recognized her efforts last fall with their “Stay in the Game” initiative which donated a $350,000 grant to East Cleveland schools.
