The selected student is then recognized as the Youth of the Month. Jaida Peterson 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 Jaida 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.”
