Adrian Optimist Student of the Month – Ballard

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 Senior, Brianna Pray daughter of Melody and Tony Pray.  Brianna is in Volleyball, Basketball, and Softball.  Mr. Bergen states, “Brianna Pray is much deserving of student of the month for her kind and respectful attitude toward fellow students and staff.”  Technology teacher, Cheryl Murchie states, “Brianna works very hard to make sure she accomplishes the goals she has set for herself.  She will help anyone that needs help.  She is a great role model to her classmates.  She has a great sense of humor.  You’ve got to watch the smiles but she does have them.”  Brianna plans to go to Metropolitan Community College then on to University of Nebraska.
