The Options Program says thank-you

The Optimist Club of Gresham, Oregon sponsors a student of the month program that is slightly different from most. Called The Options Program, it has been running in the Gresham High School for 21 years. The Optimist Club helps teachers and counselors work with at-risk-youths to keep them in school, help them avoid being tardy, and raise their grades. The Optimist Club helps especially with motivation and attitude by providing positive reinforcement.

With the current economic situation the Options Program found itself looking for additional support and the Gresham Optimist Club was there to help.  To show their appreciation, students in the program showed up outside Heidi's Restaurant at 7:00 am last Thursday to give a flash mob thank you to the Optimist Club. 

Find out more about The Options Program at the Gresham Optimist Club website.

Thanks to Gresham Bulletin editor Jean Jensen for the story and picture.
