The Key Club of BHS is sponsored by the Bullard Kiwanis Club.

Eight Key Club members received input from the Bullard Elementary School principle and teachers about the project which would “brighten up the children’s world and make them aware of the importance of reading.”

The students chose a book to read and colored something creative about it and placed it on an 18 square-inch piece of material Bullard High School students cut out to make a quilt to hang up in the school.

Each class of the second-, third- and fourth-grade classes had the size cloth to work with.

Each room made a different creative design to portray their feelings about the book they chose. Kiwanis members, Rosemary Carter, volunteered to quilt the pieces together. The Key Club members bought the hardware to hang it in the library in the Bullard Elementary School for all the students to enjoy.

Faculty sponsors for the Key Club are Tabitha Hippler and Jennifer Dorsey.
