Optimist Club State Level Competition

Optimism, Gratitude and Happiness
Congratulations to PDSD High School students at the State Level Optimist Club Competition!  The students presented their essays on the topic “How My Best Brings Out the Best in Others.”
Marques proudly presented his ideas and left the audience wanting more.  Anna confidently expressed her beliefs and impressed the audience.  Cameron positively communicated how not to give up. 
In my heart, the students are all WINNERS!  Thank you to the teachers, parents and staff who supported these students in their journey.  Please congratulate Anna, Marques and Cameron in their academic successes.
In addition, please help me in congratulating Cameron Van Zuiden in winning 3rd Place and a $500 scholarship at the State Level Competition.
These students and the experience reminded me….“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
