The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club recently recognized Kiwanian Ross St Clair with the Kiwanis International Legion of Honor and pin for 25 years of service to Kiwanis and the kids in Scott County. Pictured are from left to right Kiwanis President Terry Davis, Ross, and Kiwanis Scenic Hills Division Lt Governor from the New Albany Club, Matt Vanover. Ross has been active in various programs and projects with the Kiwanis including the Flag Program, Taco Wagon, Pancake Breakfasts, Spaghetti Dinners and is a former club Secretary. He donates hours of service each year to Kids First. Congratulations to Ross for his service to our kids!
One of the most successful efforts our Kiwanis Club has embarked on the past six years is the sponsorship of Service Leadership Programs in Scott County. As Kiwanis, we believe the best way to improve a community is to improve the kids in that community. Our Service Leadership Programs do that.
There are two different types of Service Leadership Programs we sponsor in Scott county, programs like the BUG Progrram and Clubs like K-Kids, Builders Club and Key Club. Our Kiwanis Club in cooperation with both SCSD1 and SCSD2 sponsor the BUG Program in all five elementary schools in Scott County (~300 Students). We also sponsor two Key Clubs (SHS and AHS), a Builders Club (SMS) and two K-Kids Clubs (VFES and LES). All of these clubs develop leadership through community service. We have outstanding Faculty Advisors, Angela Bray (SHS), Rusty Jones & Chandra Tally (AHS). Lisa Sutton (SMS), Katie Sawin (VFES) and Lee Anna Willett (LES). We have a strong team of Kiwanis Advisors to help me with these clubs, Terry Davis (AHS), Monte Roth (SHS and LES), and Eric Mullins (VFES).
All these students are learning how to think about how they can improve their community and school, how to plan projects, how to organize and schedule, how to speak and promote projects. They are all making a difference in our community and our schools and I couldn’t be more proud of the students and advisors. Several of our graduates are now in Circle K (the college version of SLP) continuing their development as leaders and community servants.
A great example is the project the LES K-Kids just completed at the end of the school year. They volunteered to assist with the Lexington Good Faith Pre-School giving up their recess to volunteer with these young pre-school students. Just look at the pictures to see how much fun these students had serving these younger members of their community. These are our leaders of the future.
Thank you for the opportunity to work with them! Thank you to all our faculty advisors and Kiwanis advisors. You are making a difference and I’m proud to serve with you!

Scott County Partnership Serves Austin Through the Summer Feeding Program
This summer the Scott County Partnership and SCSD 1 are partnering with the Department of Education and the USDA to provide healthy lunches to students while on summer break. Volunteers are needed to help serve lunches. Lunches will be served at Spicertown Park and Austin Community Park. The meals are provided free to students of SCSD 1, ages 18 and under. Meals will be served between 11:50 am to 1:00 pm via bus route from May 30 through July 28, Monday through Friday. (No lunch on July 4th.)
“We wanted to make sure students get a good meal for lunch but also wanted to assist families as a whole.” states Al Riggle, Chair of the Family, Health & Self-Sufficiency Committee for the Scott County Partnership. “Our hope is to help families that need some extra assistance. By providing the daily meals Monday through Friday, we have created the means to provide meals for the children all week long.”
The Lunch schedule will begin each day at the Spicertown Park at Campbell’s Mobile Home Park. Lunch will last from11:50 a.m. until 12:20 p.m. From there the bus will travel to the Austin City Park at the end of Broadway Street. Lunch will last from 12:30-1:00 p.m. We hope youth will come out every day at both sites to EAT THIS DELICIOUS FOOD!!!
Volunteers are needed for both sites to visit and interact with the youth! For more information on the Summer Feeding Program or to volunteer for the Austin lunch sites please contact Tori Rone at email@example.com or call 812-595-5198.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
