The Menomonie Optimist Club provides Boyceville High School with the opportunity to recognize the achievements and efforts of an outstanding senior student. The selected student is then recognized as the Youth of the Month.
Kennedy Hellmann was selected to represent Boyceville High School as Youth of the Month for September.
The program statement from the Menomonie Optimist Club describes the qualities and attributes that made Kennedy a great choice.
“The purpose of the Optimist Club is to develop optimism as a philosophy of life: to promote an active interest in good government and civic affairs, to aid and encourage the development of youth, in the belief that the giving of one’s self in service to others will advance the well-being of man, his community, and the world.”
To recognize her accomplishments there was an Awards Banquet held in Menomonie on September 25th. Boyceville High School staff member, Mr. Andy Hamm attended the Awards Banquet as well as Kennedy’s parents, Bethany and John Hellmann, of Boyceville. Mr. Hamm had the opportunity to introduce Kennedy and talk about her achievements, both in school and our community. Kennedy has been a valuable leader, supportive team member and a positive role model for her peers. Her academic focus and commitment to leadership has made Kennedy a wonderful choice for the Optimist Award. Congratulations to Kennedy Hellmann on being selected as an outstanding senior!
