Benicia High School
Key Club International
Founded in 1925, Key Club International is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. Often referred to as simply Key Club, it is a student-led organization whose goal is to encourage leadership through serving others. Key Club International is a part of the Kiwanis International family of Service Leadership Programs (SLPs), specifically the Kiwanis Youth Programs (KYPs).
Key Club was started by California State Commissioner of Schools Albert C. Olney, and vocational education teacher Frank C. Vincent, who together worked to establish the first Key Club at Sacramento High School in California, on May 7, 1925. Female students were first admitted in 1977, ten years before women were admitted to the sponsoring organization, Kiwanis International.
Like many Key Clubs, The Benicia High School Key Club is sponsored by the local Benicia Kiwanis Club. The Benicia Kiwanis Club was founded in 1926. Our Key Club BHS Advisor is Megan Segle and we'd like to thank her for her hours of service and dedication to the students and officers who make up the Benicia High School Key Club every year.
