Cerro Coso students form Optimist Club
November 1, 2011
A group of Cerro Coso Community College students promise to: be so strong that nothing can disturb their peace of mind; talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person they meet; make all their friends feel that there is something in them; look at the sunny side of everything and make their optimism come true; think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best; be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as they are about their own; forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future; wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature they meet a smile; give so much time to the improvement of themselves that they have no time to criticize others; and to be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
How's that for optimism? This is the Optimist Creed a group of college students have agreed to honor in the recently formed Coyote Optimist Club of Cerro Coso (Coyote Optimists). Their aim is to conduct positive service projects that benefit area youths and the community.
The Coyote Optimists Club is affiliated with Optimist International, one of the world' s largest and most active service club organizations. With nearly 100,000 members in more than 3,100 Optimist Clubs across the United States, Canada and other nations, Optimist Clubs conduct a wide range of positive service projects reaching more than six million young people each year.
