Optimist Club honors students with an Angel Award

One hundred and thirty students were recognized by the Optimist Club of Hartland, Michigan during their recent Youth Appreciation Week.  At least once a year, most Optimist Clubs will take time out of their schedule to honor special children for many different things, but most of all for being good role models and acting with kindness.

This group was given the Angel Award. The Angel Award is given to students who demonstrate care and respect for others.

Students ranged from kindergarten through high school. The program included the presentations to the students and a keynote address by Gabrielle Ford that encouraged the students and all in attendance to see the good in everyone and be the best you can be.

Optimist Clubs are unique in their mission to bring out the best in others. Events like Youth Appreciation Week do just that. Congratulations to all, students, parents, teachers and Optimist Club members in Hartland, MI. Please click here to see more photos from the evening.
