Key Club is a student-led organization whose mission is to create unity in their community through service. The members come together to do projects that benefit the community and help them develop teamwork skills. Key Club is a perfect fit for Trinity’s Christian tradition of servant leadership. This is not only a Trinity Club but also a Global Organization. Because of its global network, Key Club gives its members opportunities to meet new people and make friends through their collaborative projects.
Especially in these uncertain times, it is important to join together to work towards helping the community. This year some of the traditional service projects, such as hosting Easter Egg Hunts, making meals for the homeless, and helping clean up local parks, will be more challenging because of the pandemic. The officers of the club–Evan Gorka, Matthew Glinski, and Vanessa Wacker–along with the moderator Mrs. Stager are working together to determine how to make these projects happen in a socially distant manner. While the means to get there have changed, the club’s goal hasn’t wavered. The members spirits are high with the attitude to adapt and overcome.
Key Club invites students to unite as one to act on the four Core Values of Leadership, Compassion, Character Development, and Inclusiveness. The Club is an opportunity for students to grow as individuals and develop their unique talents. Through serving their community, the members learn to lead by example and are encouraged to become the leaders of tomorrow. Applying what they learn in the club, the members strive towards making the world a better place.
