President

HI PENGUINS!!
My name is Julia. It is an honor to serve my second term as Homestead Key Cub President senior year. I have always loved to serve. Traveling to an underprivileged part of China as a teacher for the English Camp for freshmen and sophomore high schoolers for the past 3 summers has taught me many things. This summer I flew to Belize, serving as a counselor at the Belizean Vacation Bible School, finding that all children desire to be loved. Reflecting on my Key Club experience, I do not remember the exact moment that moved me to dedicate myself to Key Club. Perhaps it was the infectious "How Do You Feel?" cheer; the snazzy Purple Penguin theme; the international “ohana” shared between Builders Club, Key Club, Circle K, and Kiwanis Club; or the combination of them all. I love to serve. It's what I do. I look forward to an AMAZING 2016-2017 term with you all! Key Club Officer

History

  • Key Club is Born

    The Key Club concept was introduced to Kiwanians by Frank C. Vincent in the February 1925 issue of The Kiwanis Magazine. This idea was supported by those who were worried about the pernicious side of high school fraternities.The first Key Club meeting was held in Sacramento in May 1925.

  • The Fervor Spreads

    The Sacramento Key Club inspired other Kiwanis groups to sponsor similar organizations in their own communities. The administrators of the Sacramento Key Club talked of the club, and even published a few articles on its activities. Principles in many parts of the country started organizing similar groups. By the late nineteen thirties, fifty Key Clubs were in operation.

  • Key Clubs Unite

    A plan for combining individual Key Clubs into federated groups was developed in Florida. A convention of existing clubs was held, a state association formed, and officers elected. The purpose of the State Association was to promote an exchange of ideas and to increase the number of Key Clubs. Conventions were held each succeeding year.

  • Around the World

    At the 1943 Sanford State Convention, representatives voted to form an International Association of Key Clubs. Three more years followed during which the outlines of the present Key Club International were drawn. Key Club International officially launched in the third annual convention in New Orleans on April 27, 1946.

  • Looking Forward

    Key Club continues to grow rapidly. There are now clubs located throughout North America and the Caribbean area. In these groups, thousands of students are receiving training in leadership and service. Districts of today are patterned after the original Florida District and its parent Kiwanis districts. These organizations hold their own annual conventions to exchange ideas on Key Clubbing, and to recognize outstanding clubs or individuals.
