Student of the Month – Ballard

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 Ballard Student of the Month is Junior Dylan Tippie, son of Staci and Jimmy Greer.  Mr. Bergen states, “With concession stand, Dylan steps up when we need him.  He cares about his studies and seems to be a good friend to many.  I like having him in class, both as a teacher and as a sponsor.”  Technology teacher, Cheryl Murchie states.  “Dylan is always willing to help teacher and fellow students with anything they ask of him.  He has a great personality and is usually smiling.  He always makes sure he has his class work turned in on time.  He is a great role model for his classmates and underclassmen.”
