Junior Antonella Lombardo has been elected New York Key Club (NYKC) District 13’s Lieutenant Governor, representing Minisink Valley, Chester Academy, Cornwall, Ellenville, Fallsburg, Burke, Middletown, Monticello and Newburgh Free Academy high schools.
Each district is divided into territories called divisions, made up of various clubs. Each division has a lieutenant governor, a student leader who carries out the district’s policies and provides support to the clubs. The Key Club is the oldest and largest service program for high school students in the world.
As the Division 13 Lieutenant Governor, Antonella will also serve on the New York District board, and is one of 27 students who will represent 300 high schools and over 12,000 high school students statewide. Locally, she will lead the nine clubs and over 345 “key clubbers” as its chief executive officer in the Hudson Valley region.
Antonella became involved with the Kiwanis organization through the K-Kids Club at Intermediate School, serving as its vice president for three years. Her involvement with the high school’s Key Club for the past three years include serving as the club’s webmaster.
She and other NYKC lieutenant governors will be inaugurated on April 1.
