That's Karsyn Dahlke, a recent graduate from C.M. Russell High School and a Special Olympics athlete.

She waves to passer-by in front of her mother’s insurance office, where she works.

A wage and a tasty lunch is all it takes to keep Karsyn happy day to day, but when it comes to her job, that honk and wave from drivers is everything.

Dahlke’s sign reads, “You are perfect to me,” and she hopes the message matters to people driving by.
