DOVER-FOXCROFT – Key Club is the world’s largest student-led high school community service organization. There are more than 150 clubs and 7,000 members across New England and Bermuda. The Foxcroft Academy Key Club has had a fantastic year led by President Olivia McCorrison and Vice President Jasper Makowski. At the 73rd annual New England and Bermuda District Education Conference in Springfield, Massachusetts, the FA Key Club received several awards, including:

● For the 17th year, we received the Early Bird Dues and UNICEF Awards. 

● First Place Award for our Monthly Secretary Reports (72/72 points) ~ (Silver Tier) thanks to our Secretary Alice Doan. 

● Seventh Single Service Award in the past eight years – third place: Festival of Stockings, where the Club raised funds to help sponsor or defray costs so children could attend different camps in the area. 

● Yearly Achievement Award – first place in the Silver Tier (36-65 members). This is the ninth straight year to receive the award.
