Adrian 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.”

Adrian’s December Student of the Month is senior, Makenna Merrifield, daughter of Mason and Alicia Merryfield.  She participates in FFA, NHS, and volleyball in school but stays extremely busy outside of school raising and showing pigs, feeding cows, and baking.  Makenna’s statement of faith is, “He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for people to cultivate—bringing forth food from earth.”  Psalms 104:14 .”

Makenna plans to attend a community college online so she can use her A+ and still work on the family farm.  She will then transfer to a 4 year university to obtain a Bachelors in Animal Nutrition while minoring in Ag Business.
