Butte Central students involved in Key Club brought home several awards from the Annual District Convention in Billings last weekend.
Nearly 30 awards were given to students at the convention. More than half of those awards went to students from Butte Central.
The students said they were surprised to bring home the majority of the awards, but they felt they deserved it.
Hannah Kline, a senior who received the Outstanding Vice President Award said, "Being in Key Club for four years has really made me a better person all together. It's nice to get a little recognition for that."
"I think all of our officers worked very hard, and we worked together, so I think that helped me get this award," said Shalleen Davis, a senior who received the Outstanding President Award. "We have really good communication in our clubs and with other clubs in our division. So, I think that helped too."
The Butte Central Key Club raised $800 this year, with the help of the Butte High Key Club, for maternal/neonatal tetanus which affects 30 countries around the world. The funds saved more than 400 lives.
