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 is sophomore, Alexis Hastings, daughter of Joshua and Rene’e Hatings and Lindsey Kates. Alexis was a player on the Volleyball team and outside of school, she plays soccer. Alexis’s plan for the future is to go to college and work in the medical field. Ballard staff has said, “Alexis has been taking Geometry/Algebra 2 this semester, and even when she is struggling with it, she pushes through. It takes a lot of perseverance to take on Algebra 2 in one semester, and she has handled it very well (though frazzled at times) Alexis’s inspirational quote is, “Always do the best you can until you know better, then when you know better, do better.”
