The Menomonie Optimist Club provides Boyceville High School staff 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.
Faith Harnisch was selected to represent Boyceville High School as Menomonie Optimist Youth of the Month for April. Faith is the daughter of Laura and Bryan Harnisch of Boyceville.
The program statement from the Menomonie Optimist Club describes the qualities and attributes that made Faith 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 both in school and the community, Faith was presented a plaque and gift certificate from the Menomonie Optimist Club. Faith is a member of the National Honor Society and will be graduating with High Honors. She is also a Basketball and Volleyball team player. Faith’s involvement with athletics helped shape her focus on dedication and teamwork, which has accounted for many of her successes both in and out of school. Faith has enjoyed volunteering her time with track meets, football games and working in the concession stands. During the Covid remote timeframe Faith found her niche in Education. She guided her young nieces through the online learning experience, helping with homework and organization, all while continuing to excel in her own courses. Faith has been a valuable contributor in the classroom, a supportive team member and a positive role model for her peers. Her tremendous strength of character has made Faith a wonderful choice for the Optimist Award.
This fall Faith will be attending the University of Wisconsin Superior pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.
