Optimist Club honors Student of the Month at Bernard Middle School

The Mehlville Optimist Club recently honored Bernard Middle School eighth-grader Demi Elrod as its Student of the Month. Demi is a sweet, hard-working young lady with many great talents. Beyond her high academic achievements, she crochets and sells the products to help the World Wildlife Foundation. She is an avid softball player and a member of her church choir. Demi participates in the National Junior Honor Society, and recently helped make fleece blankets to donate to a local women’s shelter. Among those at the presentation ceremony were her parents, Steven and Gwynne; grandparents Jean and Michael Seymour; and Administrative Intern William Nunn.
