Club Spotlight: Key Club

Are you interested in an after school activity where you can help other people or where you can earn some volunteer hours for that scholarship or the school of your dreams? Then Key Club is the club for you!

Key Club is one of the oldest service clubs that was established for high school students whose goal is to encourage leadership through helping others.

“I was the President of my Key Club in high school, and when I heard that they were going to get rid of it here, I wanted to take over because I think it is just a great club for the kids to join,” said Mrs. Frederico, Spanish teacher and supervisor of the club for the past few years now.

The East Forsyth branch participates in yard sales, campus clean up, meal service, and helps with the Bethany Cafe with First Christian Church who gives out food. They also participate in activities like filling up shoe boxes with toys or essentials and giving them to children or people in need.

“I love watching my kids do something that makes them uncomfortable, but they end up loving it and learning, like when I watch them give food to people and they act awkward, but end up enjoying the experience,” Mrs. Frederico.

To decide who will hold what office the next school year, each candidate will write a paragraph expressing why they want the position and then the club goes will vote on it.

“I was voted President junior year, after being in the club for almost a year. Michaela was Vice President that year but we both basically ran the club equally. This year we decided to be Co-Presidents and everything has run smoothly!” Morris stated.

Along with Morris, Michaela Bullard (17′) has been a part of Key Club for awhile, since her freshman year, and has enjoyed it so much that she plans to continue with the club when she goes to college!

“I joined Key Club because I wanted to be apart of a service club at East that makes a positive impact in the Kernersville community. I have stayed in the club these past three years because we have done so many service projects with Relay for Life and Across The Street Ministries,” Morris said.

If you want to do something for your community then Key Club is a great choice! Don’t forget about it in the next school year!
