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.”
JB Lile, son of Don and Ashley Lile is our April-May Student of the Month from Adrian. JB is a junior and stays very active as football manager, Student Council, National Honor Society, Future Business Leaders of America, and varsity baseball. His outside of school activities includes Velocity Baseball, Crohn’s and Colitis’ Foundation, Camp Oasis, playing the piano and reading. He also works maintenance at the school during the summer months. JB’s statement is a thank you to his parents for helping him strive to be the best student and person he can be. He also stated, “To those younger than me, always work hard to accomplish your goals. You may only get one shot, but it’s not about the outcome. It’s about the pride in working hard and doing your best.” JB is thinking about attending Kansas State University to major in architecture.
