On Tuesday, August 28th Key Club held their first meeting of the school year. During the meeting, plans were discussed for added community service, a motto for the year and impact on community.
“This year our motto is “Caring, our way of Life”, and we are excited about all the programs that we have set in place. This club has brought awareness that there are problems bigger than me or any other individual; however, as a community or club, we can overcome those problems facing our world today,” Key Club President Cesar Flores said. “Apart from bringing a better understanding of the people, problems, and opportunities around them; members will have the opportunity to earn community service hours, which in the long run will help them with college,” Flores added.
Key club members discussed involvement in community activities and upcoming events. Creating impact in the community is something the club takes seriously.
“We are definitely trying to expand the club to get more active members and trying to get involved in more activities to get more community service hours. We want to spread our impact too,” Key Club Vice President Saakshi Mathew said. “The first event we have coming up is Fair on the Square. We also have an event coming up that we’re doing for United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF). We are going to have boxes where students can donate change and we are also going to be selling fruit snacks,” Mathew continued.
“Key Club is the oldest and largest community service organization for high school students in the country. There are over 6000 clubs in schools in America and other countries.  It teaches students leadership and the need to give back to their homes, schools, and communities,” English teacher and Key Club sponsor David Reeves said.
