When we think about joining a club, we often think about helping others. That’s what Key Club is all about.

According to club sponsor Ms. Zamora, it’s a club based on inclusiveness that helps the community. They work with the Kiwanis of Little Havana, which focuses on children in need, including after school programs.

There are some basic requirements students need to join Key Club: a 2.0 GPA, good attendance, and a committed attitude.

Members contribute to the school in different ways. As part of staying active in the club, they attend most school activities, and bring their service whenever it’s needed, said Ms. Zamora.

Part of their service includes trips to the beach to help pick up trash, assisting at marathons, and attending school sporting events. In the end, it all comes down to how they can help others better their lives.

Key Club gives students the opportunity to feel like they are part of something. “Feeling like a family and helping out each other is the best feeling about being in the club,” said Dayami Mas, a senior.

Some benefits include being given food after every event and receiving community service hours, which looks good in college applications.

When asked her favorite thing about being the president of the club, senior Rosali Hernandez, said, “Being able to contribute to the development and growth of our school pride cannot be compared to any other task.”

Ms. Zamora’s responsibilities include overseeing what the club officers are doing. “The kids come up with their activities, and they come up with their plans. I make sure everything goes smoothly, and there is supervision when there needs to be,” she said. She also makes sure all the logistics are solved, including the required money for events, time and location, and the service they’ll be providing.
