Key Club Scholarships
We gave out the Asheville Kiwanis Club Key Scholarship to Havilynn Millis and the Tony Seker Memorial Key Club Scholarship to Jenna Rosco from the Reynolds Key Club. Enka Key Club member, Jisel Miranda-Santana, received the Peggy Kirkpatrick Memorial Key Club Scholarship but was unable to attend.
We have lost another Kiwanian and friend, Peggy Kirkpatrick, who died on January 18th from complications of COVID. She became a Kiwanian of the West Asheville Club in 1996 and served as their president, before joining our club in 2009. She was a vital part of our Terrific Kids program and was our Key Club advisor for Enka for many years. She also loved volunteering for the pancake breakfasts and bell ringing.
Kiwanis bike recipients at Johnston Elementary
Our club recently received a bike grant from New Belgium Brewing and were able to purchase 8 bikes and helmets for the school we have adopted, Johnston Elementary. These are 2 of the 4 students who received bikes for good behavior during the first semester (2020-2021).
We are saddened to learn that our dear friend and Kiwanian, Tony Seker, died on January 7th from COVID. He joined our club in 2000, served as president, and was treasurer for many years. Many of us have memories of Tony and his hundreds of volunteer hours with our various service projects including the Biltmore 15K race, pancake breakfasts, bell ringing, and wrapping hot dogs at Tourist games.
Kiwanian of the Year 2019-2020
Congratulations to Gregg for being chosen as our Kiwanian of the Year. He has done a great job arranging programs for our virtual meetings.
