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, Brice Eidson, son of Ritchie and Tine Eidson.  Business teacher, Cheryl Murchie states, “He is a great role model for his school mates and the younger students.  If the elementary students stop him in the hall, he will take the time to visit with them.  I can count on Brice to help me with anything I need done, from copying to climbing a ladder and running cables for me.”  Principal, Dustin Bridges states, “Brice is a student leader and great role model for the elementary classes.  From the time he walks in the doors, he is always smiling and willing to talk to the elementary students or give high fives or an occasional hug.  He is always willing to take the time, showing them that they do matter.”
