“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 February 21st. Haley’s mother, Heidi Wold, and Boyceville High School Counselor Karlene Berry attended the Awards Banquet. Ms. Berry had the opportunity to introduce Haley and talk about her achievements, both in school and our community. Haley has been a valuable leader, supportive team member and a positive role model for her peers. Haley has served as a Student Council Member and is a member of the Boyceville National Honor Society. In addition to her leadership, Haley has supported her school with academic extracurriculars like Science Olympiad, Quiz Bowl, Academic Decathlon, and Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) competitions. She is an active participant in our Drama program as well. Hayley is also a student athlete at Boyceville High School. She is the Captain of the Track Team and has played Volleyball all four years. She has earned multiple athletic awards including a Conference Championship in Discus and a Second Team All Conference for Shot Put. Haley has taken the time to give back to her community through volunteerism. She has played an important role in mentoring young athletes at Track Youth Camps, volunteered at the BHS Red Cross Blood Drive and prepares meals at Feed My Starving Children. Her academic focus, service to her community and commitment to leadership has made Haley a wonderful choice for the Optimist Award.
