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 February is Senior, Kayla Gabel, daughter of Daniel and Aimee Harnden. Miami staff state, “Kayla is planning on a career as a dental hygienist. She has managed to maintain on the A/B Honor Roll while working part time in in Kansas City. She is very caring to others and a responsible person.” Kayla states, “I thank my parents for always pushing me in school and believing in me.” She plans to further her education at Johnson County Community College.
