KEY CLUB HONORS: Two Northampton High School Key Club leaders earned outstanding honors this month at the 66th Annual New England and Bermuda District Key Clubs Educational Conference, where the club as a whole also earned high praise for its service.

Club president Zachary Dietz won an Outstanding Club President Award, and Lily Rogers won the Robert F. Lucas Outstanding Lieutenant Governor’s Award. This past year, Rogers, a sophomore, served as lieutenant governor of the 23rd division of the New England District of Key Clubs, which also consists of Springfield Central High School, Chicopee High School, East Longmeadow High School, Holyoke Catholic High School, St. Mary’s High School and West Springfield High School. In this position, she worked as a liaison between the clubs and coordinated service opportunities among them. Next year, she will serve as secretary for the Northampton club.

The Northampton High School Key Club placed second in its membership category for its service over the past year, judged by both the quality and of service and number of hours.

“It’s been a very successful year,” Dietz, a junior, said. Dietz’ mother, Renée Wetstein, also won an Outstanding Adviser Award.

Key Club, an initiative of Kiwanis International, is an international community service organization with chapters in high schools around the world. The New England District Educational Conference, held April 10-12 in Springfield, drew about 1,000 students.
