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 Miami Student of the Month for October is Junior, Ryan Yanonis, son of Jenny and Bobby Yanonis. In school his main activity is Basketball, and he enjoys video games. Staff at Miami say, “Ryan is always willing to go the extra mile to help others whether opening doors for others or helping classmates with assignments. He never hesitates to lend that helping hand. He is always here, has a great school spirit and has a good attitude.” Ryan states, “My parents inspire me to work really hard to get good grades and to get a great job.” Ryan plans to go to college studying criminal justice.
