NJ Key Club District Convention 2019

This past weekend, 15 Parsippany Hills Key club members attended the 73rd annual New Jersey District Key Club Convention at Ocean Place in Long Branch NJ. We were very excited to serve as “host club” this year which entailed decorating all of the meeting spaces in the convention theme “Toy Story”. We are very grateful for all of our club members who worked for several weeks coloring and cutting out decorations to hang on the walls of all meeting rooms, creating three large wall displays to serve as backdrops for attendees to take pictures, and centerpieces for nearly 50 tables in the main banquet/meeting room. We were also there to (hopefully!) be rewarded for all of the service we completed this past year, and we were! Our club members received the following awards:

Distinguished Club President: Alison Christian

Distinguished Club Vice-President: Amy Yang

Distinguished Club Treasurer: Matthew Degady

Distinguished Club Secretaries: Jessica Huang and Andrea Potesta

Distinguished Club Bulletin Editors: Chintan Bhavsar and Wasay Noor

Distinguished Club Historians: Olivia Terrell and Darshil Shah

The club was awarded the First Place Achievement award - Gold Division, and we were also named an International Distinguished Club, both of these for the first time in our club’s 45-year history!


Our other contest winners were:

First Place Club Bulletin (3rd year in a row) by editors Chintan Bhavsar and Wasay Noor

Second Place Non-Digital Poster drawn by Andrea Potesta

Second Place Oratorical Contest speech by Wasay Noor

Third Place Non-Traditional Scrapbook created by historians Olivia Terrella and Darshil Shah

Golden Member: Renata Krysztofik

Finally, Cindy Lam was named a Robert F. Lucas Distinguished Lieutenant Governor, and was also awarded a $1000 district scholarship.

At the District Elections, Kaitlin Cirillo was endorsed by the NJ District to run for Key Club International Vice-President at International Convention in July.

Our students represented Parsippany Hills in the best way possible, and your advisors are very proud of all of you! Congratulations!
