Adrian Optimist Ballard February Student of the Month

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”

     The Ballard Student of the Month for January is Parker Hill, son of Brian and Jill Hill.   Parker is a senior at Ballard. At school, Parker enjoys being a member of FFA and participating in Trap and Archery.  Parker’s activities outside of school are: Trap, hunting, and fishing.  Parker plans on going to Technology School to get certified as a welder.  Ballard staff has said:  “Parker has been putting extra effort and time in many different aspects,  especially in the Ag Department from his SAE, Classroom, and Contest.  He is showing resilience by continuing to show up regularly and getting better in many areas.  Parker works to overcome struggles and he continually strives to become more respectful and understanding of others.  He works to keep his grades in good standing and is looking forward to additional FFA events and participating in sports.  Parker also continues to step up and show courage by trying new things and staff wants him to know that others do see his continued effort and growth.”
