Governor's Message
Fellow Optimists, a new year allows us to reflect upon our Optimism. I ask each of you to assess your own Optimism and legacy that you are creating. We have each contributed to improving the lives of the youth in our community. Let's ensure that it continues into the future and we remain a premiere District. In this 100th anniversary of our Creed, let us think only of the best, work only for the best and expect only the best. Yours in Optimism, Gov. Jack Culver
