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 Adrian Chamber of Commerce featured business for April is the Winged Cross A Ranch owned by Von and Susan Peterson. The area ranch is located west of Adrian and currently is home to about 30 registered quarter horses. The couple explained that theirs is not a rescue outfit but that they raise and sell horses.
The Adrian Blackhawks track teams traveled to Cass Midway Monday, April 22 for the Cass Midway Relays. The boys came home with a 2nd place finish out of 13 teams. “Pretty good night for a meet tonight” commented Coach Cochran. “There was some rain around, but not much at this meet. Kids ran well. This meet is different because everything is a relay. I thought the 4x100 and 4x200 ran well. The shuttle hurdles were only two seconds off the school record and the 4x1600 relay was just a few seconds off the school record too. Good effort tonight!”
The Adrian junior high track teams participated in the Archie Junior High Invitational Thursday, April 24. The girls placed 1st out of 13 teams and the boys placed 2nd out of 11 teams.
