Two Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) students have been elected to the 2013-14 Key Club International Board of Trustees. Raeford Penny, a student at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST), was elected international president of the organization, and Eric Yoon of Oakton High School was elected as an international trustee.
Penny will serve as chief executive of Key Club International and as the official representative of the group with Kiwanis-family leadership and external agencies.
As one of 11 board members, Yoon will help define the administrative policies of the group and maintain communication with leaders of the districts to which he is assigned.
Both Penny and Yoon have been active members of Key Club throughout their high school careers; both students served last year on the Capital District Key Club board of trustees. In addition to their election victories, both were recognized with the Robert F. Lucas outstanding lieutenant governor awards for their work last year.
Penny and Yoon belong to Key Clubs sponsored by the local Kiwanis Club of Fairfax.
