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 Adrian Student of the Month is Junior, Cole Ritter, son of Steven and Lori Ritter. Cole is involved in Wrestling, Baseball, FCCLA, and FBLA in school. Outside of school he finds time for work and Reffing Youth Wrestling. Cole states, “My inspiration to do well in school comes from seeing how hard my parents work everyday.” Cole plans to go to college and continue his wrestling there.
