New Key Club chartered at Carson High School

The Kiwanis Club of Salisbury has chartered a new Key Club at Carson High School this year. The group was organized in the fall and held its Charter Night on May 24 at the school.

Key Club is an international student-led organization sponsored by Kiwanis that provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character and develop leadership.

The Carson club was chartered with 28 members. Serving as president this year is Jared Lamb. Issac Bell is vice president, Harley Amos wis secretary, Morgan Warren is treasurer, Olivia Lliano is editor and Abi Smith is webmaster. Susan Eldridge is the faculty adviser for the club.

Students involved in Carson’s Key Club participated in the school’s Halloween Boo Night for local children, made luminaries to decorate the school’s entrance for the Christmas programs, conducted a project to support Shoes for Sudan and helped the Kiwanis Club with its annual pancake festival fundraiser.

Harley Amos recently received a $1,000 Key Club college scholarship from Kiwanis to attend the University of North Carolina at Asheville this fall.

Salisbury Kiwanis Club President Jeff Ketner presented the Key Club officers with its official charter, banner and gavel. Charter members were presented with framed membership certificates and pins. Abi Smith was inducted as the new president for the coming year.

The Kiwanis Club of Salisbury also sponsors Key Clubs at East Rowan, North Rowan and Salisbury high schools.
