Optimist Club President Dennis Gesterling is shown presenting Cyndie O’Brien her awards for winning first place in the Optimist essay contest. Her winning
paper entitled, “How Dreams Lead to Success,” is now entered in the District
competition. The papers were truly outstanding this year and the committee
had a difficult time selecting a winner. Optimist pins were also awarded to
Makayla DeFebio, Bohdi O’Neil and Andrew Segovia for their excellent papers.
There were 17 entries in this year’s competition. Our thanks to all
the students who participated in our contest.
