Key Club

An international student-led organization which provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character and develop leadership.  The Key Club at Marshall Academy was started in 1999-2000 by Marshall Alumni Coleman Carlisle.  The Marshall Academy Key Club is under the supervision of the Kiwana’s Club of Oxford.  Today the MA Key Club consists of students in grades 9th-12th.   These students are encouraged to earn service hours, both at the school and in the community.  One of the biggest service projects for the MA Key Club occurs during the Spring Semester each year.  Key Club members bake and sell cupcakes weekly to the student body.  All the proceeds are donated to the Target House in Memphis.  The amount raised averages about $600.00.  Other projects that the Key Club has participated in include a canned food drive for the local food pantry and Operation Christmas Child.  Members have volunteered to work during Pilgrimage and the local Hummingbird Festival.  Many hours are earned through volunteering in local churches.  Members who earn at least 50 service hours during their senior year are awarded a green cord to wear during graduation for their accomplishments.
