Key Club Carnival Unites University School Community

University School of NSU students perform community service throughout the year, but the Key Club’s annual carnival provides a unique opportunity for the entire school to share in the spirit of community and giving.

“The whole point of Key Club is to bring family and community together to help our community and our school,” said club president and senior Jared March. “The Key Club Carnival was our way to bring us all together.”

Jared took over organization of the carnival from his older brother Joshua March (Class of 2010) who founded the event with two fellow classmates. Each participating club designates a charity for their portion of the money raised. The money is divided evenly among all participating clubs.

Not counting Key Club, over 30 clubs participated this year, which is 10 more than last year, according to March. Key Club members also expanded the event by selling vendor spots. Vendors included Brooklyn Ice, Pizza Loft and entrepreneur and University School senior Jamie Cohen, owner of The Cupcake Kid (http://www.cupcakekidfl.com/).

“The Key Club Carnival is one of the finest examples of community at University School,” said Upper School Director William Kopas. “I watched with pride in our students as they helped Lower School students enjoy each and every activity.”

Kopas noted the outstanding leadership of seniors March and Alana Gross and also thanked teachers Charlie Redler, Laura Barry and Lisa Samuels along with staff advisors Karen Martin, Giovanna Stincer, Kiki Kelrick, Carolyn Shafa, Cheza Miranda, Virginia Riling, the entire development office and all of the club moderators.
