The Hopkinsville Kiwanis Club sponsors Key Clubs at the four high schools in Christian County -- Hopkinsville High School, Christian County High School, Heritage Christian Academy, and University Heights Academy. The program has a very long history, with the first Key Club being formed in 1925 in Sacramento, California. Today, Key Club is the oldest and largest service program for high school students in the world. It has more than 270,000 members in 5,000 clubs across 37 countries. This page is designed to share the details of what our local high school students are doing to better the community.
As a way to show appreciation for the hard work of the Key Club members, the Hopkinsville Kiwanis Club sponsors 8 $500 scholarships, which Key Clubbers can apply to receive their senior year of high school.
