Jenna Hernandez – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS Key Club’s first meeting started out with an encouraging turnout. With over 80 new members joining, Key Club is really feeling how much others want to help their community.
“Our main goal this year is to get every member up to 50 hours of community service to put on their transcript,” said club vice president senior Isabella Liberti.
Key Club is making this a year full of fundraising, publicity, going to banquets all over Florida, and helping with school events.
Club officers began the meeting discussing the rules and regulations of the club and how every member has the opportunity to go to Orlando for the state convention at the end of each school year.
They also explained how to sign-up for events on their club website. Members were warned that if they sign up for an event they cannot back out at the last minute.
Key Club seniors who get 70 hours of community service through club events get to wear a recognition cord at graduation.
The LRHS Key Club meetings will be after school at 2:45 p.m. every other Tuesday in room 509.
Mustangs who want more information on Key Club can attend one of the meetings, scheduled for every other Tuesday in room 509. Students can also visit the LRHS Key Club website or contact key club class director senior Faith Kylie Kurtz.
