Key Club
International Board

 Raeford Penny

Raeford Penny
Key Club International President

What I hope to accomplish: I hope to further the input and voice of the members in the International Board's decisions, to represent what the members want. Through this, I would like to increase the publicity of the International Board's decisions and upcoming discussion topics so members have ample time to inform their representatives of their thoughts, providing ideas and arguments. Allowing members to voice opinions prior to the decision-making process at International Board meetings will strengthen the member experience and our organization. Finally, I would like to see updates made to member resources, again with input of members and clubs.

Districts: West Virginia, Jamaica, Pennsylvania, Illinois-Eastern Iowa

What I hope to accomplish: I hope to convey the powerful message of caring across whole nations. I wish to spread service resources across individual clubs, allowing member awareness of Key Club resources to exponentially increase, consequently raising the value of all our members and facilitators. With the will of all of our members, we can accomplish anything. We can save thousands of premature babies from death. We can help a child in despair. We can eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. In Key Club, together we can.

What I hope to accomplish: I hope to increase member participation at District Events by becoming a more involved Trustee. I want club members and Lieutenant Governors to feel like they can approach me at any time with any questions! By creating effective communication networks and reaching out to members, I'm positive that the gap between Key Club International and club members can finally be sealed!

What I hope to accomplish: I hope to help Key Club members realize how easy it is to serve their home, school, and community everyday. I hope to inspire them to make the most of their short time in Key Club and also to convince them to stay in the K-family for the remainder of their lives!

 Kelsie Hoppes

Kelsie Hoppes
Key Club International Trustee

Districts: Michigan, Montana, California-Nevada-Hawaii, Kansas

What I hope to accomplish: I hope to serve the organization in many ways this coming year. I will work with districts to charter new clubs while also retaining and increasing current membership, so more high school students can be given an opportunity to join our family and serve alongside others. I also hope to increase communication between the international and club level. I believe this can be done by utilizing current technology. Increasing communication will allow us to spend more time focusing on promotion and support of our outstanding preferred charities.

What I hope to accomplish: Key Club International is an enormous organization! I want to link the whole organization- even those clubs not in districts. I also want to simplify membership/dues and election information to make Lt. Governors jobs simpler.

Districts: Alabama, Carolinas, New England

What I hope to accomplish: I have three goals I hope to accomplish: raise the awareness of Key Club on international and local levels, develop a program to support orphaned Key Clubs, and increase district convention attendance in the districts I serve. I also plan to work a lot with the ELIMINATE project to aid our organization in reaching its goal for 2015.

 Michelle Petersen

Michelle Petersen
Key Club International Trustee

Districts: Capital, New York, Ohio, Rocky Mountain

What I hope to accomplish: I've had some truly inspirational leaders in my life because of Key Club and I’m honored to give back to this incredible organization. One way I plan on doing this is through my experience on both club and district boards. I've been in the shoes of a general member, a club board member, and a district board member, giving me the experience to provide a unique and holistic perspective to my district boards and fellow international board members. I also hope to create training resources for both district and club board members to be used in the absence of an immediate past officer. I have always done and will continue to do anything and everything I can to serve the members of Key Club to the very best of my ability.
