Friday, December 15, 2017

For the first time in school history, a Lincoln-Way West student has been elected to the Lieutenant Governor’s post of Key Club Division 23 of the Illinois-Eastern Iowa District.

Abigail Caskey, currently a sophomore, was elected to this executive board position and will assume the post at the District Convention Leadership Conference in March. Caskey will be replacing Amanda Pohrte, a graduating senior from Lincoln-Way East.

Lincoln-Way West Key Club aims to develop character and leadership abilities through community service. Caskey’s responsibilities as Lieutenant Governor include communicating between all schools in her division, as well as between the Illinois-Eastern Iowa District and Key Club International. She helps ensure that clubs receive necessary assistance, allowing them to best serve their schools and community.

“We are proud to have our first ever Lieutenant Governor elected from Lincoln-Way West. Abigail’s perseverance was the ‘key’ to her success, and we know she will do a great job in her new position,” commented Brian K. Willis, Jr., Lincoln-Way West Key Club Sponsor.

The Illinois-Eastern Iowa District covers all of Illinois and the eastern third of Iowa. Division 23 includes 12 High Schools: Bloom, Bloom Trail, Joliet Catholic, Joliet Central, Joliet West, Lincoln-Way Central, Lincoln-Way East, Lincoln-Way West, Rich Central, Rich East, Rich South, and Watseka.
