    Bremerton Kiwanis Supports student from Elementary through College.

     

    BHS JAG Specialist Deann Irish is the Key Club Advisor.  Under her direction, the Key Club has grown each year.  Her efforts have earned her the Kiwanian’s treasured “ Hickson Award”.

     
     
    BHS Key Club is a Volunteering Powerhouse!

    The Bremerton High School Key Club has grown into a powerhouse student-lead service group!  Since 2009 we have grown from about 12 members in 2009 to over 70 members by the end the 2013-2014 school year.  At this year’s first meeting, we had over 80 students attend!  Not only is attendance up, but so is service.  Our motto is “Service – Our Way of Life”, and this has been proven time and time again through the amazing amount of hours that our Key Clubbers serve within our district and community.  Last school year, they served over 1,097 hours with several students having personally served 70 – 115 hours.  Whew!  This is on top of AP classes, tennis, volleyball, track, music, jobs, and more.  This year our goal is to have “6 for 60” with at least six students having 60 hours of community service by our next convention in March.  Several students are well on the way to achieving that goal.  We couldn’t do it without the great support of our sponsoring club, the Bremerton Kiwanis.  Their example of leadership and service have made a solid impact on our Key Clubbers. 

     
    The BHS Key Club has the reputation of being energetic, inclusive, and always willing to lend a hand.  So if you’re planning an event and need extra hands, you know who to call!
