Good job to all who went and repped’ the Division 28 North Phoenix, we made Jarren proud. Aside from fall rally, we did many other service events that really helped the community. It’s December and that means that the holidays are right around the corner. A month full of holiday spirit and cheer means an opportunity to spread that love and cheer to others. I know you titans have been working hard with the many service projects that your board has been providing you. Keep up the outstanding work; you are all MIGHTY MIGHTY TITANS. – The East Tech Titan.

L- o v e ~we love our Sec-on-dar-y!
Key Club has done so much for me in my life. It let me meet some of the greatest people ever, and I feel important in this club, scratch that, family. Key Club has been such a big thing for the past three years. Since the first day in Key Club, I've loved it. It makes me happy, and it changed me. When I joined Key Club my sophomore year, I met the people who I believe I'll still talk to in the future. Being SAA makes me feel like I have a big part in the club. I L-O-V-E Key Club so much. My parents think it's a waste of time, and I'm broke because of Key Club, but I love it. It's a big thing in my life. -Sean Amparro
Articles! East Tech Key Club | December Issue MY First Year in Key Club- by Jonathan Madrigal My first year as a Key Club member has been amazing. So many outrageous things happened to me that i didn’t even were going to happen. For example, during the RTC practices, our vice president had a one on one talk with me and offered me a job as the future S.A.A. I was amazed how I was when they offered me the position, and of course i accepted with honor and gratitude. I don’t think there will ever be a year that will be as awesome as this one. I have made so many new friends through the power of Key Club. My first experience at RTC was unforgettable; my first year in key club and we (East Tech) won spirit rally; I was shocked and speechless. The next event up for grabs was Fall rally. Once again absolutely loved every part of it, the bus ride there and back just plain FUN, just walking in Six flags was my first time there. Even though we didn’t win, i still think we are the best. I was surprised how many 28 North Phoenix’s were there. I also blown away how big this event was and how there were so many people. Also, I loved how some East Tech members helped everyone get loud. After that it felt like we grew even bigger as a family. I would love to be in main board next year and throughout my high school years. Key Club changed my life. It makes me feel good about myself. It makes me a better person then I am today. Key Club has inspired me to be with this organization for all my four years not only a East Tech Titan but to be a 28 North Phoenix.
St Jude’s Christmas 4 Kids- by Angela Delacruz It’s the most wonderful time of the year since Christmas has come once again. As the holiday’s merriment visit fills the streets of Las Vegas, our club conducted a toy drive that is exclusively dedicated towards a selected amount of kids for St. Jude’s. St. Jude’s is a pediatric treatment and research facility housing children under their facility who suffer from catastrophic diseases as well as a research center that specializes in searching for treatments. During the month of December, our club was assigned to sponsor 22 children in the organization as a service project fit for the holidays. We were given a list of names, each with a specific description of what they desired for Christmas. Children nowadays always demand for something extravagant such as game counsels, for Christmas. But what the kids asked for were mostly simple items such as toy cars, lotion, books, clothing and gift cards. Everyone cooperated together in making their wishes come true. As some of the members wrapped their gift with cellophane with a bow on top, others were so enthusiastic and kind hearted enough to take the time and write letters attached to the gifts. I am truly proud of my club, being the hard working and charitable members as they are, were able to complete this. Not only did we bring the white Christmas to these kids, but we also realized the importance of not taking things for granted. The simplicity of the children’s wants was such a contrast compared to ours. Doing this project gave us the realization to appreciate what we have because not everybody has it good. Being Key Clubbers providing the keys to unlocking opportunities, we became the Santas to the children’s Christmas.
