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.”

Miami’s May Student of the Month is Katie Downs, daughter of Molly and Eric Downs.  Katie is a  junior  who is involved in volleyball, basketball, FFA, and NHS.  She stays busy at work when not at school.   She states her mom encourages her to work hard in school.  She plans to attend college but has not decided on a major.

Staff says: “Katie is an example for what we look for in a Miami Eagle.  She is a straight A student and takes her education seriously.  She holds a job outside of school but doesn’t let that interfere with getting quality work done on time.  She is respectful to staff and peers and encourages others to keep on task and get work completed.  She shares insights in classes that lead to deeper understanding for others.  She looks out for her younger siblings.  She represents our school in positive manner and we are proud of her.”
