The Ron Clark Academy held its first National Amazing Shake Competition for the top 130 students from district-level competitions from 17 states nationwide and the country of Honduras. The Commissioners recognized her as a Hicksville Middle School student who illustrates the traits of hard work, leadership, and individual achievement and, by these traits, will always be a great ambassador for the citizens of Defiance County, Ohio. The Commissioners congratulate Joda Freese for placing in the Top 24 at the National Amazing Shake Competition, and wish her the best of luck in all future endeavors.
