Key Club unlocks opportunities

Students gather after a Key Club meeting.

Key Club gives its members many opportunities to serve the community and help people around the school. It is a global organization with over 270,000 current global members.

Mary Fowler, a physical education teacher, has been in charge of Key Club for 6 years.

“Key Club is fun, and it makes you feel good to help others and make a difference,” Fowler said.

Senior, Destiny Sanders, is the current president and has been in Key Club for 3 years.  

“I like getting to participate in fun activities while also serving the community,” Sanders said. “It is a good opportunity to give back to the community. It has made me value community service and leadership while forcing me to step outside my comfort zone.”

The club has around 30 members and has been at BAHS since 1991. Their core values include leadership, character building, caring and inclusiveness. 

They help with elementary schools, nursing homes, and events such as Empty Bowls, Blue Star Moms, Lab Rescue and many more. 

Kaitlynn Meyer joined the club last year and is the Vice President this year.

“Key Club provides a fun way to connect with the community,” Meyer said. “My favorite part of the club is setting up the meetings and finding fun places to volunteer.”

Key Club volunteer hours count for NHS and look good on college applications. There are also scholarship opportunities that come along with being involved in Key Club.

“Students should join Key Club for the experience of getting to help their community and having fun while doing it,” Meyer said.

In order to join Key Club, students can join the Remind by texting @k8k69c to 81010 or come to a meeting. Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month at 7:20 in the Aux Gym or 2:35 in the Field House lobby.
