LAHS Key Club

Last month, six Los Alamos High School students attended the Key Club Southwest District Convention in Albuquerque.

Key Club is the high school branch of the Los Alamos Kiwanis Organization - a club dedicated to performing acts of service around the community, from Breakfast with Santa to Children’s Christmas Bazaar.

The students attended the District Convention in order to learn how to better serve their community and to connect with other students with a love for service as well as participating in competition that recognized their hard work for the 2018-19 Key Club Year. The LAHS club did very well placing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in multiple categories.

Four of these students enjoyed learning more about community service so much that they are going to the international convention in Baltimore, Md. over the summer where clubs from across the world converge to vote on the international board and spend a week in a new city. The students attending are all first-time International Convention (ICON) attendees, except for the immediate past president of the club, Mackenzie Rogers. She says that last year at the convention, she “had the opportunity to meet new people and participate in voting on a larger scale for an amazing club”.

The students are all incredibly excited to have this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but in order to go, they must do some fundraising. The attendees of the convention will paint house numbers on curbs Wednesday, April 24 (other dates may be added depending on interest).

The painting is free, but donations are greatly appreciated. To have the students paint your curb or or to donate, email 505.709.0887.
