Kevin Elizalde, son of Armando and Rebeca Elizalde, recently attended the International Key Club Convention (ICON) in Orlando, Florida. He was one of nearly 1800 high school students from around the world to celebrate leadership, fellowship and service.

International Convention highlights include internationally known speakers as well as individual and club competitions, leadership-development activities and service programs and projects. Key Club's ICON is a group of young movers and shakers networking and supporting each other so that they really can change the world.

Key Club of Storm Lake High School is sponsored by the Beavers Kiwanis Club of Storm Lake. Key Club International, a service leadership program of Kiwanis International, is the oldest and largest service program for high school students, and gives its members opportunities to provide service, build character and develop leadership skills.

"This was an experience of a lifetime," said Kevin as he looks forward to attending ICON in Washington, D.C., in 2013.
