Kiwanis Club of Caverna and Caverna High School Key club sponsored 5 students to attend the Kentucky/Tennessee district Key Club Conference on March 22-24 in Franklin, TN. The event, which hosts hundreds of high school Key Club members from Tennessee and Kentucky was an opportunity for the newly formed Caverna Key Club to get familiar with the workings of the civic club at a larger level. Students were able to attend leadership sessions and network with other high school students from across the two states. Amanda Abell, President of Kiwanis Club of Caverna, said “We are so very proud of all the students who took part and have become involved in this program. We are opening doors and providing opportunities to these students to build leadership skills and promote success in achieving their life goals.”
Caverna High School student Malaki Thompson was elected as one of 14 district Lieutenant Governors across Kentucky and Tennessee for the upcoming year. Malaki will take part in several conferences and leadership events over the course of the year and will serve as one of the key decision makers for the Kentucky Tennessee District. Thompson will take part in a trip to Baltimore later this summer for the national conference and will represent the Kiwanis district and Caverna High School. Abell continues “we are so excited for the experiences Malakiwill get on this trip and for the way he has stepped up to be a leader not only in our school and community but at a multi-state level. “
The Kiwanis Club of Caverna is planning fundraisers to help support the trip and other trips that Thompson will take part in during his tenure.
Kiwanis Club of Caverna meets the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 6:00 in the Caverna High School library. Anyone interested is encouraged to attend.
