HPHS Key Club Students Attend State Conference

HPHS Key Club Students Attend State Conference


Twelve Highland Park High School Key Club students started their spring break attending the 67th annual Key Club District leadership conference in Wichita. At the conference, students from various parts of Kansas heard from guest speakers, shared ideas on how to better serve their communities and completed in different categories.

Congratulations to Jonathan Lozano, who ran for District Officer and will serve as this year's Division 11 Lieutenant Governor. Cassandra Santiago won first place on her solo performance of Sapphische Ode by Brahms, which she sang in the Talent Contest. Marineth Ordinal won second place in the Impromptu Essay Contest in which she composed in 45 minutes.

Club Sponsor, Bria Collins, wants to give special thanks to Mr. Nathan Cooper for driving and chaperoning the trip. To Ms. Angie Davis and Ms. Monica Augusto for their help in arranging transportation and billing. The Key Club is sponsored by the Southwest and Downtown Topeka Kiwanis and each club generously donated to cover the remaining costs of the conference fees and lodging.

Key Club is an international student-led organization to provide service, build character and develop leadership.
