The Kiwanis Club of Hastings is pleased to announce the receipts of the Key Club Student of the Month for January and February. Dr. Bob Becker presented the awards to two very outstanding members of Hastings High School Key Club.
January Student of the Month is junior Blake Harris, the son of Rebecca and Kenneth Harris.
During his first year as Key Club member, Blake made great strides in bringing attention to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. In honor of his sister,
Blake is donating his award money to that organization. He plans to continue to make a difference in the lives of others through community projects with the Key Club and his commitment to educate others about challenges faced by those with juvenile diabetes.
February Student of the Month is freshman Grace Kurr, the daughter of Anne Wilcox-Kurr. When the Key Club decided to make toys for the Barry County Animal Shelter, Grace found her passion in helping make a difference at the shelter.
She enjoyed learning about the different opportunities for impacting the community through service with the Key Club. Grace has selected the Barry County Animal Shelter to receive her Kiwanis donation.
Hastings Kiwanis congratulates both young adults and looks forward to what they will bring to the future of the community with their attitudes of service to others.
