HHS freshmen honored by Kiwanis Club

The Kiwanis Club of Hastings recently honored Hastings High School Key Club students of the month for March and April. Selected students and their parents are invited to a Kiwanis lunch meeting, introduced, and allowed to choose what organization will receive a $50 donation in their name.

The March student was freshman Madison McWhinney, daughter of Stephanie and Jes McWhinney. During her first year as a Key Club member, she said it was the smartest thing she has done.

“It has given me many opportunities to do such fun and meaningful stuff,” McWhinney said.

One of her favorites is the work the club has done with the animal shelter, which is why she choose the the Barry County Animal Shelter to receive the donation in her name. 

The April student of the month was freshman Taylor Owen. The daughter of Perry and Julie Owen, she also has enjoyed many of the activities of Key Club, including the UNICEF collection, Imagination Library, visiting seniors at Thornapple Manor and making toys for the Barry County Animal Shelter. Her Kiwanis award donation will be given to Green Gables domestic shelter.
