Friday, May 10, students and sponsors of Key Club participated in their annual retreat. This year, they went to Timberline Baptist Camp grounds for an overnight trip.

“I think it is important for Key Club to have a retreat every year because it gives our members something to work for and look forward to,” Key Club President Joy Nelms said. “The members have been very dedicated this year and I have enjoyed working with them and my fellow officers.”

Key Club is a student-led leadership organization with a goal of encouragement and service for others. Throughout the school year, students involved are required to obtain at least fifteen service hours to receive credit for the organization as well as attend the retreat.

The sponsors and members played sports games and used teamwork to solve an escape room created at the camp. Many guest speakers also attended the retreat to motivate and congratulate service members on their work throughout the year.

“I have really enjoyed being a part of Key Club throughout high school,” Key Club Co-Vice President Abigail Fernandez said. “Every year at the retreat we have a great time bonding with people [that share] a love for service.”
