Kiwanians honor students for service

SPRING HILL — The Spring Hill Kiwanis Club officially recognized Deltona Elementary School's K-Kids on March 27 at what the school called its Banner Night.

K-Kids, a Kiwanis-sponsored organization for elementary school students, "is the youngest and fastest-growing service organization for elementary students worldwide," said one of the group's facilitators, science resource teacher Donny Weed.

"Our K-Kids club will provide opportunities for members to work together in service to our school and community,'' Weed said. "Our members will develop leadership potential."

The chapter at Deltona consists of students in grades 3 through 5. Writing resource teacher Sue Roth facilitates with Weed.

At Banner Night, club officers were sworn in as leaders, and the rest of the participating students were sworn in as members in front of their parents. All received Kiwanis pins.

At this level, Weed said, the focus of the students' service is their school. They are recycling, they have held a school cleanup day and they plan to put in a garden. The club meets about two times a month to brainstorm and come up with projects.

Here are the students who signed up for membership this school year:

President, Kaylie Walker; vice president, Elijah Medina; secretary, Jennifer Munsey; treasurer, Victoria Fears; and sergeant-at-arms, Jackory Mowatt.

Membership: Victoria Adesso, Raven Bourne, Jessica Porter, Brittany Shirley, Kimber Merritt, Samantha Gouart, Laurence Rivers, Sarah Kelly, Aleesia Daignault, Hailey Schubert, Morgan Leonard, Graeson Reyes, Kayla Butts, Paola Gaier, Sarah Norford, John Spatz, Brianna Golde, Lexi Goble, Anthony Valante, Lydia Van-Dyck, Anthony Jones, Katelyn Campbell, Nicholas DeMeo, Nicholas Falcon, Jeremy Bonczek, Dominic Lamagno, Courtney Schubiger, Serena Sota, Ivan Morales, Louisa Frost, Thomas Christ, Jesse Zaker, Zachary Pugh, Dylia Maines, Emily MacAlpine, Jaden Alicea, Chelsea Honeycutt, Caitlyn Papke, Ashley Lopes, Kayla Tanner, Nathan Wood, Hyron Perez, Leighen Serama, Kenzie Phillips, Joshua Bonczek, Brittany Burkhamer, Hope Guyer, Taylor Tipton, Chreslyn Serama, Alyssa Kirkpatrick, Tessa Casey, Hannah Fears, Brandon Polise, Vincent Villicana, Amanda Garofano and Toni Aiello.
