On Sunday, the Fairbury Optimist Club recognized 16 students from area schools for their determination to succeed at school and their willingness to seek achievement in life.

Diane Schutt, President of the Fairbury Optimist Club, explained that the Optimists have hosted this event for several years, honoring different students each year and encouraging them to pursue all that life has to offer.

“This event is meant as a way to recognize all that these students have achieved throughout their lives,” said Schutt. “We need to take the time to recognize their hard work and dedication as they make their way through school. This is the Optimist Club’s way of saying ‘we believe in you and we want you to reach your goals.”
