Submitted By Denise Fullerton
At their November 13 morning meeting at the Newark IHOP Restaurant, the Newark Optimist Club honored two Newark Memorial High School (NMHS) seniors who epitomize what is Òright with American youth.Ó
With the aid of NMHS Student Activities Director, Patricia Charron, the club chose Nicole Anne Denise Hu and Andrew Reynolds to receive the 2013-2014 Newark Students of the Year awards. Optimist President, Robert Higday and Newark Mayor, Alan Nagy, helped Youth Activities Chairman, Denise Fullerton, present plaques to the students. The students were chosen to receive the honor for their outstanding service to the school, their volunteer efforts at the school and in the community.
Congratulating the students, along with club members, were Mayor Nagy, and Mrs. Charron, proud parents, and Mr. Phil Morales, Principal of NMHS.
This year, Mayor Nagy, as directed by the City Council, proclaimed November 10 to 16 as Youth Appreciation Week in Newark. He also presented Nicole and Andrew with official commendations for their superior volunteering services to their school and community.
