Those in attendance for our club’s weekly meeting on March 14th, which was held at the Harper Creek High School cafeteria, were privileged to hear from twelve Harper Creek High School Seniors who participated in the club’s Youth Appreciation Program. This ceremony was held in conjunction with the Optimist Student of the Month program and an excellent meal was provided by the Harper Creek Community Schools for all in attendance. This program involves Harper Creek Senior students that are selected by the High School Staff relative to their excellence in demonstrating academic success and leadership skills “job shadowing” a Harper Creek school administer for a day. Each student gave a brief talk about their experience and what knowledge they obtained from participating in the program.
