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 Freshman, Lexi Ward, daughter of Bev and Mike Ward.  Lexi is active in Basketball, Volleyball, and Art Club.  She is in 4H outside of school.  Ms Bergen states, “Lexi has a positive attitude, is almost always smiling, always willing to help when needed, has great sportsmanship, and is a great role model for others.”  Mr Dunkin states, “She is self motivated.  She askes relevant questions in class.  She is highly disciplined and a joy to have in class.”  Lexi plans to go to college to become a nurse.
