Two Ada HS students attend Kiwanis Key Leadership program

The Ada Kiwanis Club sponsored two Ada students, Shelby Hazelton and Mackenzie Wills, to the Ohio Kiwanis Key Leader program recently. The event was held at Recreations Unlimited in Ashley, Ohio.

Key Leader is a weekend experiential leadership program for today's young leaders. This life-changing event focuses on service leadership as the first, most meaningful leadership-development experience.

A Key Leader will learn the most important lesson of leadership—it comes from helping others succeed.

Participants attend a Key Leader conference, which is a weekend retreat. Large and small group workshops, discussions and team-building activities take place over the course of the weekend. Students have opportunities to learn leadership skills that will help them to change their schools, communities, and world for the better.

While exploring leadership in a whole new way, participants will make amazing new friends and have experiences they will never forget. Positive, ongoing interaction with other Key Leader graduates offers continuing reinforcement, encouragement and growth of leadership skills. 

Since April 2005 Key Leader has served more than 16,400 students at 317 Key Leader events in 39 U.S. states, 5 Canadian provinces, Malaysia, Brazil, Cayman Islands, El Salvador and Singapore.

Shelby is the daughter of Chad and Jaime Hazelton of Ada. Mackenzie  is the daughter of Scott and Jamie Wills also of Ada.
