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 is Abby Downs daughter of Molly and Eric Downs. Abby, a Freshman, is active in Basketball, Track, Volleyball, and Softball. Outside of school she is into playing sporty games outside like whiffle ball and kickball. Abby states, “I think that the teachers really inspire me to stay in school because they have to do so much work with little pay and have to put up with children. Miami staff state, “Abby is a kind and responsible student. She takes initiative when something needs to be done. As for her future, Abby says, “I don’t know yet.”
