Adrian Optimist Miami Student of Month for December

The Adrian Optimist Club is pleased to honor Students of the Month from the Miami, Ballard, and Adrian schools.  Criteria for this honor center on outstanding academic and civic achievement and school spirit.  Staff at each of the schools make the selection, and their decision is based on expansion of these criteria.   Selection is based on the criteria, but a student stepping up to a particular task will come to play in it.  Each student is honored with a certificate of recognition from the Adrian Optimist Club and $20.00 in Adrian Chamber of Commerce “Chamber Bucks”

Miami’s December Student of the Month is Levi Julien.  Levi is a senior and the son of Jason and Rebecca Julien.  He enjoys playing basketball, but at the moment, he is recovering from knee surgery.  He plans to attend the State Technical College of Missouri to become a heavy equipment operator.  Levi’s statement to others is “To stay in school and stay on task.”  The staff at Miami says, “Levi is always cheerful and brings a good atmosphere to school.  He is helpful with all students and staff.”
