President’s Corner: Juliana Zhang Hey Key Club! I'm excited for a new year of community service and bonding with all of you guys. I'm so glad that you have decided to join Key Club and I can't wait to see all of the things that we accomplish together from the ELIMINATE Project to anything else we put our minds to. Let's have a great year!

-Juliana Zhang

Vice President’s Corner: Hannah Oden - Brunson Welcome back Key Club, I hope you're ready for an awesome year of service because we have tons of exciting events and opportunities lined up! Key Club is not only a great way to help out our school and community, but also a chance to work together and make friends. We're a team so feel free to talk to any of the officers about service ideas you might have, and let's see all we can do together!
