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 Senior, Jessi Baker, daughter of Rex and Patti Baker. In school, Jessi is in Volleyball, Cheer Leading, Track, FFA, and NHS. Outside of school she is into Swim Team, volunteer at House of Hound, and works as a waitress. Jessi is inspired by this statement by Vincent Van Gogh, “I am still far from being what I want to be, but with God’s help I shall succeed.” Jessi plans to further her education at College of the Ozarks majoring in Art Education K-12.
