Princeton Senior High Key Club

The Princeton Senior High School Key Club recently attended the 62nd annual West Virginia District Key Club Convention April 4, 5, and 6 at the Marriott Hotel in Charleston, West Virginia and returned with several awards and honors.

A first-place achievement award in the state in the Silver Division (clubs of a certain size) was received by the club. This outstanding achievement is based on the club’s service to others, the administration of the club, and the education of its members, among other things. A membership increase award was also received, which included a trophy, a banner patch, and lapel pins for each officer.

Individual awards were received by the following convention attendees: Nicole Larkin received a Distinguished President Award, Lucas Woods received an Outstanding Secretary Award, and Judy Foster received a Jeff C. Britton Outstanding Faculty Advisor Award.

Over 180 Key Clubbers throughout West Virginia, representing 24 clubs, attended this annual event. Seven members of the local Princeton Senior High School Key Club attended this convention. The Princeton Senior High School students who attended this convention were Ryan Anderson, Dakota Farmer, Nicole Larkin, Jessica Lee, Alison Lester, Jordan Pruett, and Lucas Woods. Faculty advisor Judy Foster accompanied the students to the convention.

Key club is an international organization of over 250,000 high school students who pledge to serve their home, school, and communities. Key Club is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. What makes Key Club so successful is the fact that it is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through serving others. Members of the Kiwanis International Family, Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities.

Today, Key club exists on over 5000 high school campuses, growing at a rate of over 200 clubs per year, primarily in the United States and Canada. Growth efforts, however, have taken the Key Club experience internationally to Canada, the Caribbean nations, Central and south America, and most recently to Asia and Australia. The Princeton Senior High School is composed of 46 members and is sponsored by the Princeton-Athens Kiwanis Club.
