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 Payton Miller. Payton, a Junior, is the son of Brandon and Casie Miller. Payton is a proud member of the Ballard Basketball team and enjoys catfishing, hunting, and walking in the woods. Payton’s inspirational quote by Sun Tzu is. “He who is destined to defeat, first fights and afterwards looks for victory.” Staff at Ballard say. “Over the years Payton has matured into a polite, helpful, and positive student. He is thoughtful and considerate to other students and teachers. He is not afraid to try new things and is committed to improving after starting. I am delighted to nominate Payton and believe it is beyond time to celebrate his efforts, heart, and great attitude. Payton plans to train to become an EMT.
