Two Key Club International student leaders have been announced as additions to the March of Dimes National Youth Council. Jared Doles and Abigail McKamey will join 17 other top college volunteers around the country to support March of Dimes youth programs.
National Youth Council members are selected because of their demonstrated leadership ability and their potential for service to the March of Dimes Foundation, to further the mission to improve the health of babies. Each of these members is an accomplished volunteer for the March of Dimes, one of Key Club International’s service partners.
Jared Doles is currently one of 11 International Trustees of Key Club International. Through this role, Jared has become involved with the March of Dimes including fundraising efforts and raising awareness. During his time with Key Club, Jared has shared information with districts and schools on how to get involved with the March of Dimes in addition to planning fundraiser at his own school for the organization. Jared will enter Arizona State University as a freshman this fall, with a major in film production.
Currently serving as the Key Club International President, Abigail has received numerous young leader awards for her strong leadership and service ethic. Her desire to do hands on service for children has led her to want to continue her involvement with March of Dimes past her tenure with Key Club. Abigail will enter the University of Tennessee at Knoxville this fall as a freshman, majoring in English and history.
National Youth Council members work closely with other volunteers and professional staff at the March of Dimes regional and national offices and in the chapters to provide leadership and assistance in these programs. In addition, National Youth Council members will be involved with national partners, advocacy initiatives and with the development of collegiate programs.
