LRHS Key Club urges Mustangs to try a little kindness

Morgan DeGlopper – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- LRHS students’ acts of kindness will not go unnoticed once the LRHS Key Club’s Eye on Kindness Project launches.

Eye on Kindness aims to recognize students who complete acts of kindness, as well as inspire others to do the same.

Key Club is partnering with Art Collaboration, and is starting the Eye on Kindness project. Arts Collaboration is a class in which students learn about different issues around the world and try to give back.

Students would be selected by asking deans or other faculty members for recommendations of people they witnessed going out of their way to be kind to others.

Key Club treasurer Serena Rojas, senior, stressed that this is not a new organization, but rather a product of Key Club. Therefore, in order to help with the project, students must be a member of Key Club.

The Lakewood Ranch Key Club’s website explains Key Club is an “international student-led organization that promotes leadership through volunteer work and community service.”

There are Key Clubs at the elementary, middle, high school, and college level. There are affiliated with the Kiwanis Club, which works very closely with the Key Club here at Lakewood Ranch.

Key Club is in need of new members, especially freshmen, who will help this project last.

The first meeting for Key Club is scheduled for Aug. 22 in room 509.

Mustangs not in Key Club can still help the Eye on Kindness project by suggesting ways to recognize and reward students who complete acts of kindness. Suggestions can be sent via email to LRHSKeyClub1@gmail.com .

An easy way to stay up to date on the Eye on Kindness project is to follow Key Club on Instagram @Lrhs_keyclub. For now, the project is still in construction, but will hopefully kick off soon.
