For the first time in several years, Key Club is an official organization at Lufkin High School. Key Club is an international community service organization for high school students, and it is the largest and oldest high school community service club.
Business teacher Shaniqua Davis is the coordinator who supervises this club, but the organization is student-run. She has a specific goal in mind for the members of this school organization.
“The goal of this club is to create leadership, provide service, and build character,” Davis said. “The core values of Key Club International are leadership, character building, caring and inclusiveness.”
Key Club members share a similar vision to make this world a better place. Members work towards this goal by serving the community and school.
“We are caring and competent servant leaders transforming communities worldwide,” Davis said. “The objective is to provide experience in living and working together with people in the community.”
The club has its own slogan that goes along with the goals this organization has set for its members.
“Our motto is caring-our way of life,” Davis said. “Our goal is to change the community which always needs help, one person at a time.”
This organization may be in its first year, but they have already contributed to making this community a better place.
“The members have volunteered at the Parkwood nursing home and at the Zoo Boo in the past two weeks,” Davis said. “They plan to help another organization feed the community sometime in November for Thanksgiving.”
Anyone who is interested in giving back to their community should visit the website Keyclub.org to gather more information on this international organization.
