The CrossOver No.2

Hello Keys Family,

As we prepare to enter a new year, it is always good to reflect and evaluate the past year. Looking back over the 2017, I am blessed and honored for this illustrious organization to still be around serving Kansas City. 2017 has been a been a year of first for the KC Keys. We have instituted the Danny Williams Scholarship Fund that assist graduating seniors with book scholarships. I was also voted to be the new president, making me the first female president in the program’s history. 2017 was an introduction to the amazing things that are to come in 2018.
