Chloe McRae has been named Prairie River Middle School’s Youth Optimist of the Month, for the month of September.
Chloe was nominated by Mrs. Jolene Weix who said, “I am nominating Chloe McRae as Youth Optimist of the Month because she exemplifies what an optimist is. She looks at challenges as an opportunity to improve herself, or the situation. Chloe has an enthusiastic outlook each day she comes to class. She is well prepared and organized. Her insight and willingness to share benefits not only the group she is working with, but also the entire class. That attitude is recognized by her peers as a positive role model. Her excellent grades are attributed to quality work and the desire to always do her best. I believe Chloe would be an excellent representative of what the Youth Optimist Award stands for. She is well deserving of this award!”
