Ballard December Student of the Month

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”

Ballard’s student of the month is a seventh grader, Kennedy Borland.  She is the daughter of Bryan and Chelsi Borland.  In school Kennedy enjoys being a part of the volleyball team and scholar bowl team.  Outside of school she enjoys spending time with family and friends and participating on the swim team.  She has set high goals as she plans to attend MSSU and major in Interior Design.  The Ballard staff has said, “Kennedy shows great empathy as she is helping her fellow classmates.  She always has a smile, and they like how she is very considerate towards others.  She is always helpful to staff and others in her classroom.”
