Last Monday, April 2nd, 2018 Jessica Pritzker, faculty advisor who teaches biology, spoke to our weekly meeting about the Glenbrook South Key Club. This academic year they have 281 students participating (WOW!) and expect to tally 2,000 hours of community service with 70 events for the year. They average 2-to-3 events each week, and they have their own website that you might want to visit.
On an annual basis our club provides scholarship funds to the two Key Clubs in our communities--Glenbrook North in Northbrook and Glenbrook South in Glenview. Recipients are chosen by the faculty advisor(s) of the Kiwanis Key Clubs at each school and is based on the leadership skills shown by the student within the Key Club.
$1,000 can be awarded to a student who will be attending a four-year college or university, and $500 can be awarded to a student who will be attending a two-year community or vocational college. Funds are paid directly to the institution the student will attend.
A portion of these funds are provided through the generosity of a bequest from the Margaret and Martin Topaz Charitable Remainder Unitrust, in addition to funds donated to our club through our Raffle and Pretzel Days fundraising activities. Marty Topaz was a resident of Northbrook and a long-time member of our club. He had a strong belief in education. Thank you, Marty and R.I,P.
