More fun than any high school student could expect to have! Today, three students from Mrs. Suarez's class were rewarded for their efforts in the Penny Wars drive sponsored by the Hanover Central High School Key Club. Each student had with the opportunity to throw a pie at a teacher. Take a look as Tyler Mason obliterates the face of Mr. Gustas, and Mr. Denton takes a hard hit from Kyle Morganwhile Mr. Cotey takes his punishment from Tyler Sadler. Great Job and Good Sports all for worthwhile causes. The money collected will be shared with Project Eliminate, a joint worldwide project between Kiwanis International and UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus, Pennies for Patients which benefits The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and local Key Club Community projects. More photos and collection totals coming soon. See the original post here!
Indiana's all-time high school scoring record no longer belongs to Damon Bailey. It is Jackie Young's to savor.
Young, a Notre Dame-bound senior at Princeton (Indiana) High School, became the state's top all-time scorer, by boy or girl, after a 39-point night on Thursday, giving her 3,160 points for her career. Bailey, a former Bedford North Lawrence star, scored 3,134.
"It's an amazing feeling. Just to finally break the record feels great," Young told WEHT after the game.
Young recently passed Shanna Zolman's girls career scoring record of 3,085. According to the Indianapolis Star, Young is averaging 37.8 points per game in 22 games, all Princeton wins. Princeton beat Pike Central on Thursday, 79-33.
A 6-foot guard, Young is the No. 11 prospect in the espnW HoopGurlz Top 100 for the 2016 class and signed with Notre Dame in the November early signing period. She recently was named a McDonald's All American.
Bailey, now an assistant coach for the Butler women's basketball team, was made famous by John Feinstein's book "A Season on the Brink." In it, former Hoosiers coach Bobby Knight said Bailey, then in eighth grade, could play for him right then. Bailey went on to star at Bedford North Lawrence, filling high school gyms beyond capacity, before excelling at Indiana.
ENHS Key Club spreads Christmas cheer by singing loud, for all to hear.
East Noble High School Key Club recently went to some local nursing homes. We sang Christmas Carols and gave out some presents and Christmas Cards to some of the elderly that normally don’t get any visits from family or friends.
WHS Key Club spread Christmas cheer this holiday season by adopting two families for Christmas.
The club went above and beyond, purchasing not only the gifts that the family requested, but essentials as well. Each family received, in addition to the Christmas gifts, a laundry basket full of basic goods such as detergent, toilet paper, and toothpaste as well as groceries such as cereal, milk, and a Christmas ham. The club bonded at the annual wrapping party, where club members chatted and laughed while wrapping and sorting gifts. "It was really eye-opening to buy presents for people my age," one member reflected. "It made me think about how lucky I am."

WHS Key Club Raised Supplies for Local Food Pantries
From October 17th to October 31st, Westfield High School’s Key Club ran a school-wide food drive to benefit local food pantries as the holiday season draws near. The Key Club, a local chapter of an international service club, offered the incentive of breakfast in class for the second period class that brought in the most canned goods. True to their word, a huge breakfast of bacon, fruits, cereal, pastries, and more was delivered to Mrs. Hassler-Troutman’s second period Spanish class, which collected an impressive 412 cans. Overall, the club collected a whopping 1,519 canned goods that will be used to help local food pantries this Thanksgiving. The club officers were immensely gratified with the results, and the amount of students who were willing to donate. Mrs. Breanna Bever, the club’s adviser, said that the event was wonderful “thanks to my wonderful Key Club students!” The club’s next project will be to participate in Adopt-A-Family in the coming weeks.
