Kiwanis Club hosts DHS Key Club induction

The Kiwanis Club, which celebrated its 70th year in Demopolis on April 21, 2017, hosted an induction ceremony for the Demopolis High School Key Club on Tuesday, April 18, at the Demopolis Country Club. Twenty-five students were inducted into the Key Club.

Amy White, President of the Demopolis Kiwanis Club, and Valley Harrison, Kiwanis Club Treasurer, presented pins and certificates to the Key Club inductees in attendance. 

Key Club is a service club, a service club not only established to develop its members into better citizens, but also, through its members, to build a better nation.

One difference between Key Club and many of the other service clubs at Demopolis High School is that it partners with the local Kiwanis Club, therefore connecting local business leaders with possible future leaders. This partnership allows for shared community service projects, thus providing another connection between present and future generations of business and community leaders.

The new Key Club members in attendance are:  Mary Frances Brown, Kate Floyd, Cheyenne Martin, Caroline Overmyer, Caroline Poole, Aurelia Brown, Matt Dollar, Makayla Durden, Brionna Howerton, Tariana Jackson, Shaelin Jones, Tatum Owens, Napolean Roberton, Casey Speed, Justin Stephens, Anna Kaye Williams, Nathan Williams, and Parker Hallmark.

Those inducted but not in attendance are: Yanna Kelly, Jaylyn Branch, Russ Logan, Nya Rowser, Taylor Vail, McKenzie Walker and Zaria Williams.
