Eighteen members of the Thunder Ridge High School KAY Club recently attended a KAY Unit Conference on Wednesday, February 6 at Norton High School. Accompanying the group were their sponsor, Kathi Boden and Robin Billings.

KAY (Kansas Association for Youth) Unit Conferences bring neighboring KAY clubs together in a non-competitive environment, providing the opportunity to share service projects and program ideas. The theme for the unit conferences is “Building Dreams.” The Unit Conference is designed to focus on club leadership at the local level in addition to developing teamwork as everyone participates in a conference service project. Conference delegates return to their clubs refreshed and focused to end the school year by finishing all planned projects and functions.

The Kansas Association for Youth is a character-building, leadership program directed by the Kansas State High School Activities Association. This nationally acclaimed organization provides students an opportunity to learn to assume their citizenship responsibilities and to enrich their personalities through well-organized programs. These programs emphasis four areas of service: school, community, nation and world.

Throughout the 2018-2019 school year, the Thunder Ridge High School KAYS have been actively involved in the following service projects: Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat, Breast Cancer Awareness Night, Block the Doors Food Pantry Drive, made door decorations for the Nursing Home, shown appreciation for staff and bus drivers, and have hosted American Red Cross Blood Drives.
