Sanford High School’s Key Club, the school’s leadership and community service club, attended the District Key Club Educational Conference (DECON) in Springfield, Mass. on March 31 through April 2.

“It was a great experience and learning opportunity for all members of the club,” said Mia Kane, Key Club President.

DECON is a conference that New England and Bermuda clubs attend, where each club presents its accomplishments from the past year. The conference also had banquets, lunches, and hosted dozens of panels, classes, and presentations that members could attend.

Audrey Coleman, Key Club secretary, attended a “Key Club after High School” panel, a fun “How to draw Ned the Lobster” class, a “Key Women in History” presentation, and a “Key Club Alumni” panel.

The keynote speaker for the conference presented how failure was the key to success.

Samantha Phillips and John Paul Alexandre served as Sanford Key Club’s delegates and voted for the 2023-2024 District board.

Officers received awards as well as the elections for new district officers. New officers had the chance to attend workshops directly related to their positions.

“We [went] on our annual trip to educate and elevate the skills of our members,” said Key Club advisor, Kyle Landry, “and to celebrate our achievements!”
