Vice President, Dr. Louis DuBose accepts congratulations from Bandera Independent School District Board of Trustees President Laurie Neff on behalf of the Optimist Club of Bandera, at the board’s May meeting. The Optimist Club sponsors the Optimist Student of the Month Program, honoring a Bandera High School boy and girl each month during the school year. The faculty selects the students from among their peers for their spirit of positivity and optimism. At the end of the year, two Students of the Month from the past year are chosen to be Students of the Year and receive scholarships. The Bandera Optimist Club also supports the Young Texan and Texanne Program where juniors from the South Texas District of the Optimist Club International compete for scholarships. The Optimist Club truly values the children of Bandera ISD and helps them develop their full potential and has been named to the Stand Up for Texas Public Schools Program, sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards.
