Key Club goes extra mile

For her 17th birthday, Issaquah High School Key Club President Kaileen Dougherty celebrated by helping others.

She and more than 100 Key Club members made Valentine’s Day cards for Seattle Children’s and made two banners that read “IHS Key Club Loves You!” that she and student Aaron Tham delivered to Aegis Living and Regency Newcastle.

Key Club members who helped with the project received a piece of homemade birthday cake. Seattle Children’s staff had nothing but positive anecdotes about children in hospital beds thrilled to know that some “high school kid” was thinking about them, Dougherty said.
