The Key Club of Riverton High School won a international first place award Friday night at the organization’s national convention in Chicago. Sponsor Brady Beers said the win came for the club’s annual “Thanksgiving For All” dinner, in which the community joins with the club and delivers many hundreds of cooked thanksgiving meals throughout the city.
“The Category was for a Single Service Award,” Beers said. The Thanksgiving project has earned prior awards from the national organization, but this was the big one. “This is just not our award,” he said. “The service project was completed by both the Riverton Key Club and the Riverton Builders Club. We had lots of community help as well.”
Team members who attended the Chicago convention included Citlalli Almejo-Ponce, Isaac Almejo-Ponce, Kameron Murfitt, Megan Friday, Joey Martinez, Miracle Gardner, and Amy Hambrick.
Beers also said it wasn’t the only award to come Riverton’s way. “Our District won an award for working with the Thirst Project. We (RHS) raised the most money per member for their cause.”
Congratulations Key Club!
