Cathedral Key Club hard at work

Published 12:51 am Thursday, November 29, 2012

It’s Key Club week at Cathedral High School, and we would like to tell you a little about Key Club.

Key Club is an international student-led organization that provides its members with opportunities to perform service, build character and develop leadership.

At our Key Club, we have many service projects to help our local community as well as the world.

For Key Club week, we are doing penny wars at school. The classes battle to have the most money at the end of the week. Proceeds for penny wars will go to Project Eliminate to eliminate neonatal tetanus worldwide.

Other projects we do include volunteering at The Natchez Children’s Home, nursing homes, the Great Mississippi River Balloon Race, our school fall festival and at highway clean-ups.

For our single service project, we have participated in the Pink Wave Project that benefits Relay for Life.

All of these projects have made us a diamond level distinguish club — that is the top honor in our district, LaMissTenn.

Our district includes Louisiana, Mississippi and West Tennessee.

The governor of this historic district is our own Rachel Benoit. We try to do as much as possible for our home, school and community.
