Cactus Shadows Key Club, a club for Community Service, is ready to help the community through volunteering.
“So far this year there’s been enthusiasm and it’s been super fun. A lot of good energy at the different meetings with good turnout,” said Danae Sprouse, advisor of Key Club.
Key Club meets every other Thursday after school and is open to every student here on campus. The club is led by advisor, Ms. Sprouse, and club President Reagan Fenicle.
Key Club is community service and project oriented. Many opportunities outside of campus to earn community service hours are provided. Additionally, every meeting counts as one hour of community service.
The club volunteers at Kiwanis, food kitchens, and animal rescue facilities here in Cave Creek. The main lessons students take away from the club is student leadership, and providing service.
“I decided to become president to bring in other members to share the joy,” said Reagan Fenicle, president of Key Club.
A way the club brings its members together is through its yearly trip. Since Key Club is an international club, students who participate will be invited for a trip with the other members.
“I joined my freshman year from club rush and they swung me because they said it’ll look good on your application and you get community service hours,” said Libby Hord, vice president of Key Club.
The main goal for the club this year is to become a tree campus. Many trees were wiped out from storms over the course of last year, leaving lots of room to grow more, here, on campus. To accomplish this, Key Club is planning to collaborate with the Environmental Club to help them plant the new trees in a joint club initiative.
Key Club has many goals set and in action for this year all while helping the community and making the campus a better place for its students.
