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.
Cade Klefstad was selected to represent Boyceville High School as Menomonie Optimist Youth of the Month for September. Cade is the son of Molly and Brent Klefstad of Boyceville.
The program statement from the Menomonie Optimist Club describes the qualities and attributes that made Cade 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 his accomplishments there was an Awards Banquet held in Menomonie on September 25th. Boyceville High School staff member, Mr. Andy Hamm had the opportunity to introduce Cade and talk about his achievements, both in school and our community. Cade has been heavily involved with Athletics, Science Olympiad, Student Council and his Academics here at Boyceville High School. He has been the Captain of three athletic teams including Basketball, Cross Country and Track. Cade’s level of commitment in Science Olympiad has earned him numerous medals at the state level including an event called “Mission Possible”. Cade had been involved with both Student Council and National Honor Society as a positive reflection on his character and academic focus. He volunteers at his local church and gives back to his community. Cade has been a valuable leader, supportive team member and a positive role model for his peers. His academic focus and commitment to leadership has made Cade a wonderful choice for the Optimist Award.
