2015 Youth Appreciation day Winners – 5/26/15

Sometimes you just want to stand up and cheer!

Nine students from nine schools were selected by their teachers and principals to be recognized by the Point Loma Optimist Club at Youth Appreciation Day.  The day started with a celebratory breakfast at the San Diego Yacht Club, with family, friends and Club members.  These students were then recognized by their schools for contributing to a better school and classroom environment.  And, the Club recognized them with a framed certificate and $200 in cash for their optimism, leadership, initiative and responsibility.  We are very proud of our 2015 Youth Appreciation Day Winners!

The Point Loma Optimist Club salutes and congratulates:

Lily Eros of Warren Walker School for being a hard worker, a helper in the classroom and always having a smile on her face.

Ava Plummer of Ocean Beach Elementary for being an outstanding student, a role model and putting forth great effort with a positive attitude.

Jacqueline Riddle of Sunset View Elementary for being a volunteer, a leader, showing great effort and being an amazing student.

Max Feiler of Silver Gate Elementary for being a great helper in the classroom and excited about every challenge presented to him.
