International Sandy Nininger’s Life: Alexander R. “Sandy” Nininger was a charter member of the Key Club at Fort Lauderdale High working hard to improve the school’s athletic program with the same dedication he would show for his country. Second Lieutenant Alexander Ramsey Nininger, Jr. was posthumously honored on January 29, 1942 by President Roosevelt with the Congressional Medal of Honor, the highest award for valor in action against an enemy force. Only 94 Congressional Medals of Honors were given during WWI and Nininger was the first in WWII to receive this honor.

Nininger, Jr. as the ideal Key Club member.

It honors individuals in terms of their own abilities and weaknesses, opportunities and lack of opportunities.

Criteria:
