DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — Foxcroft Academy senior Lucy McDermott of Dover-Foxcroft was elected to the Board of Trustees of Key Club International at their 68th session in Phoenix, Ariz. earlier this month.
McDermott will serve with 10 other trustees from around the country and the officers of Key Club International to help develop policies and programs for Key Clubs across the country, Canada and other countries where Key Clubs are active.
Key Club International, with headquarters in Indianapolis, Ind., is a member of the Kiwanis family of service clubs. It is the largest high school service organization in the world. Its 256,000 members contributed more than 12 million hours of community service during the 2010-11 school year, according to McDermott.
In her role as trustee, McDermott will be assigned three districts where she will serve as a liaison between the International Board and the local clubs. Some districts are limited to a single state while others include many states. She will travel extensively to work with her districts and participate in national meetings with the Boards of Kiwanis, Circle K and Key Club.
