An open thank you to the Optimist Club of Anderson, IN

It is always heartwarming when a student does just a little more than expected. Just ask the Noon Optimist Club of Anderson, Indiana where a young oratorical contestant advanced from the club level competition, through the zone and then came in as the first place winner of District Optimist International Oratorical Contest. For his efforts, Chandler Carroll received a $1,500 scholarship and earned lots of great memories.

To show appreciation, he sent an open thank-you letter to the local newspaper. A thank you card to the club would have been nice, but sharing his enthusiasm for the event and the Noon Optimist Club was even nicer.

Congratulations to Chandler for your success and many compliments for your thoughtfulness.
