Key Club holds elections in upcoming weeks


Key Club members applying to run for next year’s president, vice president or secretary must turn in their forms at the club meeting on March 17 in the freshman cafeteria, either before or after school. Elections for these positions will take place at the March 31 meeting, and elections for class board member will take place after spring break.

According to club co-sponsor Katie Gray, students should vote for those who seem to have both the enthusiasm and the time to give their position in Key Club the attention it deserves.

“(As an officer), you really have to be thinking of Key Club all the time, about how to bring more (volunteering) opportunities so that (over 400) members can get their hours,” Gray said.

In addition, according to Morgan Perry, club president and senior, club officers need to be organized and responsible, and they should be comfortable working with others, especially adults. She said she sends around 20 e-mails a week related to Key Club activities.

“It’s a lot of work,” Perry said, “but it’s definitely worth it. (Being president of Key Club) gave me a lot of leadership experience and helped me branch out to other organizations like Relay for Life. I’ve also met a lot of people, and it’s nice that everybody knows who I am and is comfortable with me. Key Club just gets you involved with everything.” By Thalib Razi
