Key Club’s mark on Liberty community

Ashtyn Sakamoto, Staff Writer

Dubbed the Thirst Project, this year’s Key Club district task is an inspiring one.

 

Members throughout the district will be raising money and awareness about an important cause—the water crisis in parts of Africa.

 

Though this is an ambitious goal, there are several ways for members to have a positive impact locally, whether it is through tutoring kids at Valley Church every Thursday or filling donations with regional organizations. I am especially thankful for Key Club’s work in tutoring elementary school kids. For me, tutoring is an important way to directly give back and it is also something I do on a regular basis.

 

Key Club is just one of our many student-run clubs serving the community. The club has several members on its board to oversee all of its activities and help coordinate its service events. To be a member, you must reach the minimum of 30 hours of participation at Key Club sponsored service events and attend a majority of the meetings.

 

Even though some Key Club members are involved in other clubs such as DECA or National Honor Society, they go above and beyond specific Key Club requirements. I am grateful for the hard work of club members and their inspiring commitment to bettering the community.

Key Club also encourages members to attend the yearly District Convention, “DCON”, which is a large conference with everyone in Division 28 (Liberty’s division) and other divisions throughout the Pacific Northwest.

 

Thank you Key Club members for making a difference!
