Welcome to the end of the school year! Seniors, hang in there — you’re almost to the finish line. As you prepare for graduation, think about joining a Circle K or Kiwanis club. Continuing your Kiwanis family journey is a great opportunity to carry the love and passion you have for service throughout your life. As long as we have caring and competent leaders like you, the world will keep getting better.   

Your Key Club experience doesn’t have to take place only during the school year! Join us for the 75th Key Club International Convention in Chicago, Illinois. Meet Key Clubbers from around the world, learn how to be a better leader and help elect your new governing board. It’s the biggest Key Club event of the year, so you don’t want to miss it!

Summer means service. That’s right! Use the skills you’ve acquired over the school year to better your community during your time away. Mow your elderly neighbor’s grass or host a car wash with your fellow club members for The Eliminate ProjectMake the most out of your summer break and give back. 

Before you rush off, here are a few words from Key Club International President William Sims:  

Hello Key Clubbers! I cannot believe that in a little over a month I will be giving my farewell as international president. This year has been filled with many late nights, stressful moments and hard work, but as I reflect on my year, that is not what comes to mind. What I see when I think about my term is the people: the amazing people that I get to work with on the Key Club International Board, the adults who guide us at Kiwanis International, the members all over the world making an impact on their communities, all of the wonderful people that I have met on my travels. I could go on and on about how this job has made an impact on who I am as a person, but the biggest impact has been left on me by all of you. The lessons that I have learned, the stories that I have heard and the memories that I have made are what I will take with me for the rest of my life. Key Club International is such a great organization, and what makes it so great is all of you. My advice to you, whatever role you hold in this organization, is to get to know the people around you, because Key Club is filled with some of the greatest people that you will ever meet.  

Key Club International, thank you for allowing me to serve you as your international president! 


 

We really can’t say it enough. Thank you for all that you do. Change does not happen overnight, and each positive step we take is a step toward a better tomorrow. That better tomorrow is happening because of dedicated individuals like you. Never stop striving to be better. Thank you for choosing to be a member of our family.   

See you in September!
