At a weekly meeting on Thursday, February 21, Key Club held the elections for next year’s club positions. Each candidate made a short speech and answered questions from the members of the club. Every position, from president to sophomore class representative, was filled through a vote unless the position was uncontested. Before the elections began, most of those running passed out candy in hopes to gain votes from fellow club members.
