Alex Tunell and Caitlin Pendleton, both juniors at Superior High School, were selected as the Superior Optimist Club Youth Optimists for the month of October.
Alex is a member of the Pledgemakers board and Youth Leadership, and participates in SHS track and basketball. He volunteers as a referee for the Salvation Army, and leads “The Edge” Bible study at SHS. His plans after high school include a career in marketing or business.
Caitlin is a member of Harvard Model United Nations, The Spartan Spin, and is a youth representative on the Douglas County Board of Supervisors. She would like to attend college after high school with the goal of becoming a physician.
The students have been joining the Optimist Club for weekly luncheon meetings. They will have the opportunity next fall to apply for a $1000 community service award sponsored by the club.
