High School Key Club gets top honors at convention

Apr 10, 2023

The Wareham High School Key Club came home from the New England District Key Club Convention, held in Springfield from Friday, March 31 to Sunday, April 2, with a busload of awards.

High schools across the country have Key Clubs, student-led groups which serve local communities. Of the 177 high school Key Clubs in New England, only five were recognized at the Springfield convention for their “distinguished” work. Wareham was one of them. Only three club vice presidents were recognized as “outstanding,” and Wareham’s Kiley Sullivan was one of them.

Wareham High School won first place in its division for its Single Service Project, which involved collecting Christmas gift donations for the Department of Children and Families.

Laura Clements won second place in the convention’s speech contest, Aidan Dillen won second place in the essay contest, Samantha Girard came in second place in the scrapbooking contest and Indiana Troupe came in third place in the promotional video contest.
