Chamber recognizes Student
for excellence at Cook Primary School
Ricky Pierce Jr., a first grade student at Cook Primary School, was the recipient of a brand new scooter and helmet compliments of the Adel-Cook Chamber’s Education Committee awarded at the recent Bee Hive Bash. He is a student in Ms. Angela Williams’ class. Ricky is the son of Ty’Mecia Scott and Ricky Pierce Sr. Every 8 weeks a deserving student is selected in a drawing at the school's Bee Hive Bash to receive the award. The scooters, a popular item with the students, are given by the Chamber’s Education Committee as a way to reinforce good behavior, good attendance, and good academics among the students. Close to 750 students are eligible for the prize at any given time and the winners shine as great examples of the fact that hard work always pays dividends.
