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 October is Austin Rankin, son of Sherry and Ken Rankin. Austin, a Senior, states, “it is what it is.” And just keeps pleasing everyone at Miami. He enjoys his outside of school job working at a cabinet shop and plans to continue there. Miami staff state, “Austin is one of those students that consistently does the right thing. He’s consistently polite and pleasant to those he encounters. He’s an all-around good kid.”
