On March 11, 2012 the Aldine Optimist Club welcomed the winners of the Aldine Optimist Club Essay Contest. The subject this year is “How my Positive Outlook Benefits my Community “. First place went to Wil Rios, a senior at MacArthur High School and also Valedictorian of his class. Third Place went to Luis Velazquez, a senior at Aldine High School.
