Since 1957, Optimist Clubs have recognized youth for their talents in the arts, athletics, academics, and for contributions to community. Today, we honored three outstanding students from Centerville High School who have been nominated for this year’s Youth Appreciation Award.
Dr. Tom Henderson
The superintendent of Centerville City Schools came to lunch to honor three CHS seniors with the Youth Appreciation Awards: Jade Eilers, Abigail Lachman, and Emma Schutter. These students were honored for their leadership, service, and involvement in high school and community activities. All three recipients will receive a “Star” plaque.
Henderson’s presentation was titled “Elks Back to school, Centerville City Schools 2020-2021.” He remembered on 3/11/2020 he was at a convention and the participants watched the Governor’s announcement on TV that K-12 schools would be closed for 4 weeks It became evident the online classes would be longer than 4 weeks and that the schools buildings would be shut down. There were a few people in each building making sure the buildings had no issues and to make sure maintenance issues were handled.
Dr. Henderson spoke to us today about our local school system. He said he enjoys the relationship he has with the school board. Recently students have formed their own version of the board and it has been positive. Today those students are representing Centerville at a State Board meeting in Columbus.
