Morris Innovative High School now boasts a Key Club, chartered thanks to the help of the Dalton Kiwanis Club President Bert Poston. The organization was initiated in the fall of last year and is now officially established after recruiting 15 members and adhering to other rules and standards.
Key Club is an international, student-led organization that provides its members with opportunities to provide services, build character and develop leadership.
The club has already started several projects throughout the year which have made an impact on others in the community. Some of the leadership activities that the Key Club has initiated or taken a part in for this past school year are Pinwheels for Child Abuse Prevention, helping with the school block party, running a canned food drive during the holidays, helping with the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast and translating for others in the classroom.
Juliana Diaz, MIHS student and Key Club member, said, "I am looking forward to doing many more great activities to help others in the coming months through the Key Club."
