Five Jefferson High School students, who are members of Key Club International, spent a recent weekend in South Charleston with about 120 other members, adult advisors and Kiwanians at the 15th annual West Virginia Key Club Fall Rally.

They were divided into “family” groups with country music artists as their mascots. Activities included skits, Olympic competitions, experience sharing and motivational talks, in addition to plenty of time for informal bonding and eating. Everyone left the event energized and ready to expand service opportunities in his home community and the world.

Jefferson High students who attended were Avery Younis (club president), Sara Miskus, Caitlin Sanders, Lexi Persad and Matt Murphy (area Lieutenant Governor). Dr. Bernard Wayne Knott and Adele Knott of Shepherdstown Kiwanis Club served as Kiwanis advisors.

Key Club is the largest student-lead service organization in the world with more than 280,000 members in 17 countries.

They are sponsored and supported by local Kiwanis Clubs. The Jefferson High School Key Club members have served our community since the school opened in 1972.
