Cayman Islands Key Club members have been busy in recent months.

In July, immediate past Lieutenant Governor Greyshell Bent and current Lieutenant Governor Leah Robinson traveled to Chicago for the Key Club International Convention. They were on hand to receive the award when club members from John Gray High School were announced as the winners of the international video contest.

The previous month, the Key Club participated in Cayman’s first Volunteer Fair.

In April, students from Cayman high schools – Cayman Prep, St. Ignatius, John Gray, Triple C and Clifton Hunter High School – traveled to a district conference in Orlando, Florida, attending various training workshops.

John Gray High School Key Club stood out with Maxine Eldemire receiving the Jack Gander Outstanding Faculty Advisor award. The president, vice president and treasurer of the club took distinguished awards. The school also won the Governor Citation, six Distinguished Members awards, the Secretary award for pride report submission, first place in the silver division for the Single Service award and first place for its Key Club video, the same video which later won the prize in Chicago.

In a statement, Ms. Bent said: “It was an exciting experience and I was extremely proud of my division because we were able to win so many awards for our schools and represent Grand Cayman so well at the convention. It was the first time that we won the Key Club video award, or first place for single service, and we are extremely grateful to JGHS President Alle Ann Sobrejuanite.”
