Key Club Returns to Crawford campus after 10-year Absence

Crawford's CHAMPs students now have the Key -- the Key Club. After more than a decade absent from the campus, the Kiwanis Club school auxiliary is back.

At the Crawford Educational Complex, CHAMPs is the school of the Community Health and Medical Practices and educates students aiming for careers in health care.

The Crawford Key Club joins their fellow students worldwide dedicated to serving the children of the world. Students volunteer for programs giving their time and talent while learning leadership skills.

This new Key Club chapter was definitely the key students were looking for, providing an avenue for their enthusiasm and desire to learn. Once it was established, more than 60 complex students joined and they have performed thousands of hours of service to their school and community.

This week the Crawford chapter was honored by Kiwanis officials in a ceremony hosted by Carlene Barros, Key Club sponsor. Club officers Jasmine Branch, Margaret Phiukao, Kellie Kim and Asma Hussein accepted official charter membership in Key Club International during a ceremony presided over by Tom Teagle, Kiwanis Lt. Governor; Ken Coley, president of the San Diego Club; Robert Headland of the Harbor Club; and Frank Petersen of the University Club.
