U-Hi Key Club busy

University High School’s Titan Key Club in the Central Valley School District has been working on several community projects.

The group collected children’s books for Page Ahead Literacy. The books will be donated to low-income students.

Club members turned out for four days at the Valley Mall Red Robin during the restaurant’s “Burgers with a Heart” campaign. The students raised $946, which will be donated to the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery.

The club, sponsored by the Spokane Valley Kiwanis, has also been selling coffee in the mornings at the school and donated the proceeds – $346 – to the Wishing Star Foundation.

The students have accumulated 1,650 hours of community service and have raised $2,492 for various organizations since September.

Key Club president is Chandler Watson and the group is advised by Wally Watson.


The Central Valley School District board of directors awarded its 2011 Meritorious Service Awards on Monday to members of the district’s staff and community.

Certificated employees honored were Rik Austing of Horizon Middle School and Shirley Brick of Ponderosa Elementary School.

Classified staff receiving awards were Jeff Haynes from the transportation department and Ronda Stewart from University High School.

The team award went to the summer transition team from Central Valley High School: Jason Allen, Shirley Andrews, Katie Bousley, Katie Louie, Phillip Plesek, Cheryl Regnier and Adrienne Schoenberg.
