Key Club Brings Home Accolades From Leadership Conference

Key Club members go to the District Leadership Conference (DLC) to learn more, be recognized through many awards, and have fun along the way

The group of Key Club sponsors, officers, and members together after the final General Session of the DLC conference in Springfield, Mo.

With each any every project, Liberty’s Key Club chapter continues to solve a very special mystery: how to be kind and better our homes, schools, and communities. Together, the members of the club work to provide service and change the lives of many, from now to the years to come as well.

This video was made for this year’s District Leadership Conference (DLC) promotional video competition, one of the many events that happen during the conference made for Key Club chapters and members from many different locations of the MO-ARK district. DLC is the annual conference that Key Club chapters all over participate in, and where many Key Club members can educate themselves on a variety of topics and compete in different competitions, while having a fun time together. This event took place from Thurs. March 14 to Sat. March 16 in Springfield, Mo. 

For sophomore Ella Quinney, this was her very first DLC trip. Quinney was recently elected to be the club editor for the 2024-25 school year and the trip.

“It was a great learning experience and a lot of fun. My favorite moment was getting to know all of the officers that I’ll be working with next year,” Quinney said.

Key Club took home a plethora of awards from this year’s conference:

  • 1st Place Oratory Competition won by Lorelei Wise (10)
  • 2nd Place Oratory Competition won by Lydia Hamby (12)
  • 2nd Place Talent Show Competition won by Lorelei Wise (10) and Loukya Vaka (10)
  • 3rd Place Digital Poster Competition won by Ella Quinney (10)
  • 2nd Place Traditional Scrapbook Competition won by the chapter 
  • 1st Place Single Service Silver Tier Competition won by the chapter

In addition to the awards, three LHS Key Club members got elected to District Office. Junior Russell Haynes was elected as the Lieutenant Governor of District 4, junior Pranad Balla was elected as the District Secretary, and junior Aarush Survi was selected as the governor of the MO-ARK district for the 2024-25 school year.

From memories to accolades, DLC this year was certainly a special trip for the people who attended.
