Key Club

Key Club is a student-led, teacher-advised organization that builds leadership through service to the community. It is the oldest and largest service program for high school students and is represented in 37 countries around the world! The Greater Johnstown High School Key Club, which is sponsored by the Johnstown Kiwanis, has been providing service to the school and community for over 70 years. With the help of Kiwanis liaison, Fred Smith, and advisors, Cynthia Maloy, Luigina Magistro, Melissa Oswalt, Rebecca Corte, Kerry Pfeil, Robert Curcio, and Annette Reitz, the nearly 100 members are able to participate in around 30 service projects a year. These opportunities allow students to engage in meaningful service that benefits the local community.

Some of our annual projects include:

  • Kiwanis Rose Sale
  • Math Night at East Side Elementary
  • Community Arts Festival in Westmont
  • Veteran’s Day Breakfast at East Side
  • Slovak Festival at the Discovery Center

If you are not a high school student, you can still get involved in your community by asking your teachers about K-Kids (East and West Side) or Builders Club (JMS). College students can continue their service by joining their local chapter of Circle-K. Upon graduation, young adults can see their experience come full circle by becoming a member of Kiwanis International.
