The Northridge Optimist Club met at the Miami Valley Career Technology Center, 6800 Hoke Road, on Tuesday, April 26th to present Clara Follin (left) and Bailey Williams (right) each with a $1,000 Northridge Optimist Club Scholarship. Northridge High School is the home school for both. These students, their families, all of the Optimists and school representatives enjoyed a wonderful lunch in celebration of these students’ academic accomplishments. Congratulations to both.
Meeting of April 19:
The speaker at the April 19 meeting was Karen McQuery of Artemis Center. In June 1985, Artemis Center for Alternatives to Domestic Violence was established as Artemis House. Founded by a small group of women, often working without pay, Artemis was to provide services beyond the traditional housing and safety offered by shelters. By providing information and support, Artemis empowers victims to make decisions and choices that will lead to safety for themselves and their children.
The club meeting of April 26 will be held at Miami Valley Career Technology Center for the presentation of two scholarships to MVCTC students whose home school is Northridge. These scholarship recipients are selected by counselors at MVCTC in conjunction with the Northridge H.S. counselor. The scholarships are funded by the Northridge Optimist Scholarship fund administered by The Dayton Foundation.
Several additional scholarships will be presented to Northridge High School students at the Northridge High School Awards Ceremony in the High School Auditorium on May 18. These will include the Northridge Optimist Club Scholarships (administered by The Dayton Foundation) and the Cargill/Northridge Optimist Club Scholarships funded by Cargill.
The March 27 edition of The Dayton Daily News mentioned two of our club projects on page B2 of the State and Local section. It highlighted some Northridge School news, and included photos from our Pass/Shoot/Dribble event, and the Essay Contest awards.
