In high school, the Greater Randolph Area Kiwanis sponsored our Key Club which is the high school version of Kiwanis. They truly made a substantial impact on the success of my high school career. Through their mentorship and friendship I gained valuable leadership and professionalism skills that I have carried through life all while gaining a true heart for service to others. As a Kiwanis member today, I am honored to serve alongside such giving members of the local community.
