Key Leader weekend is a life changing experience

I can't thank you enough for the support you give to our Fontana Key Clubs! My students were all beaming with joy and excitement today! Early this morning they were eager to come tell me about their weekend at Key Leader Camp and ecstatically they recounted detail after detail about their weekend. Each student was transformed as they learned the value of being leaders in their school and community. They acknowledged their shortcoming and each expressed with such enthusiasm the desire to change, be involved, be leaders, and be a community. Unanimously they expressed this weekend event was life changing and they all stood up today during our club meeting with tears in their eyes sharing with all the members how significant this leadership camp was and how they wish every student had been able to have learned what they learned and to have been impacted as they were impacted. Without Kiwanis providing scholarships for these students, there is no way our students would have been able to attend such an event and please know you made a difference in the lives of 5 AMAZING Fontana High School students who will remember this event for the rest of their lives! I know Key Club taught me so much 10 years ago, when I was a timid club president who learned so many leadership skills that I continue to apply to my life today. THANK YOU for all that you do and please know that all your labor and support is not in vain.

With deep gratitude,
