Announcement  Regarding Internal Change in the KT District Key Club Adult Committee

Hello everyone,

The Kentucky-Tennessee District Key Club Adult Committee consists of the District Administrator, Assistant Administrator, and Zone Chairs located throughout the K-T District. Every member of this committee is dedicated and committed to serving Key Club and young people. It is a privilege and an honor to serve on this committee and work with the outstanding Key Club members, Faculty Advisors, and Kiwanis Sponsors from all around our great district.

I am writing to inform you of an internal change to the makeup of this committee. 

I am stepping down as district administrator and into a new role on the committee. This is a personal decision I made to allow me to spend more time with family in my retirement. 

I am excited to inform you that Kira Wilburn, a current member of the K-T District Key Club Adult Committee has been appointed as the new Kentucky-Tennessee Key Club District Administrator. This change became effective April 1, 2024. 

Kira is from Ashland, Kentucky, and has worked with Key Club since 2015. She became a member of the K-T District Key Club Adult Committee in 2022.  Kira’s experience as Key Club Kiwanis Advisor, her Key Club District Committee experience, and her administrative skills will ensure a smooth transition and help Kentucky-Tennessee Key Clubs continue to move forward. Our website,, will reflect this change. If you need to reach Kira you may contact her at .

I look forward to continuing to serve on the committee in my new role. With Kira’s leadership, the dedicated district adults, Kiwanis District support, excellent sponsors and advisors, and most of all the outstanding Key Club members, I am confident that Key Club in the K-T District will grow and reach new levels of success.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Steve Phillips

Congratulations to our new District Historian and Bulletin Editor!

Hello KT District!

I am honored to announce that I have selected Allison Price from Daniel Boone High School as our District Historian for the 2024-2025 service year. I am also happy to announce that I have selected Ngaih No from South Warren High School as our District Bulletin Editor for the 2024-2025 service year. I am confident that both of these officers will do a great job throughout their terms.

I wanted to thank everyone who applied. I enjoyed getting to meet you and learn all about your Key Club experience. Please keep on going, this club needs great leaders like you!

As always, feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

Yours in service,

The 73rd annual Key Club International Convention (ICON) will be held July 9th – 14th, 2024 in Atlanta, Georgia. Due to the proximity of the convention to our district, this will be a great opportunity to attend ICON at a relatively low price. The K-T District is once again offering a tour to the convention. The tour provides students the opportunity to attend the convention and enjoy Atlanta and the surrounding area.

Also, if school and school district regulations allow, the district adults are able to serve as chaperones for students attending. Here is information on the KT District Tour and a Registration Form.

How to pay for ICON?

Ask your sponsoring Kiwanis Club. Most Kiwanis Clubs that are financially able, are glad to help Key Clubbers attend ICON. You are certainly appropriate to ask. Many students fundraise the entire amount.

Hey KT!!

I’m Jack Slaton, the 2024-2025 District Governor. Currently, I am a sophomore at Bardstown High School in Division 12.

I cannot wait for the year ahead and I am ready to serve you all. I wanted to thank everyone for an amazing District Convention. It was so much fun meeting and talking to each of you. I hope to see as many of you as possible in Atlanta for International Convention.

As you may know, at DCON we elected and installed the 2024-2025 K-T District Board. However, our board is not yet complete. We are in need of a District Historian and District Bulletin Editor to serve on our district board. This is a great opportunity for any Key Clubber who wants to meet new people, improve their leadership skills, and overall serve their home, school, and community. To apply, you must complete an application and attend a Zoom interview.

Below, I have linked the application for both Historian and Bulletin Editor. Be sure to read the top of the form for position information.

District Bulletin Editor:

Applications are due April 1st, 10:59 pm CST / 11:59 pm EST. Serving on the board is an amazing opportunity, and I urge you to apply. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

Yours in service and friendship,
