June Featured Service Project:
This month, we’d like to highlight the GK chapter at the University of the Virgin Islands- St Croix. They worked with their university to set up a tour of the campus for 400 students at Juanita Gardine Elementary School. Golden Key members gave speeches about the importance of aiming high and striving for success with an emphasis on the importance of academics, leadership and service. The speeches tasked students to do well academically, to take charge as future leaders and to get involved in their communities through service projects and lending a helping hand to someone in need. The purpose of the event was to instill the importance of education and literacy in students from an early age as a way to plant the seed for them to strive to reach their potentials.
