Key Clubbers visit Florida

The 74th Annual Key Club Florida District Convention was attended by 11 student representatives from the five Key Clubs in the Cayman Islands and three adults, who journeyed to Orlando, Florida from 10-13 May.

Once there, the students participated in exciting and informative workshops, received officer training and enjoyed a performance by world renowned magician Jason Latimer. Additionally, voting for the new 2012-2013 District Board and participation in fundraising efforts for the ELIMINATE project – an initiative pioneered by Kiwanis and UNICEF to eliminate maternal/neonatal tetanus from the earth by 2015, were undertaken.

John Gray High School Club Treasurer Nathan Dilbert called the District Convention, “The best four days of my life!” JGHS President Matthew Welds said, the District Convention really showed me that Key Club is so much bigger than Cayman.”

While at the convention, outgoing Lt. Governor Diana Tibbits of the Cayman Islands Key Clubs won the Prestigious Leader of Leaders Award and the Distinguished Lt. Governor Award. She also co-hosted the Talent Assembly and incoming Lt. Governor Alexandra Franklin, installed at the convention, Sang God Save the Queen at the Governor’s Ball.
