Julia Segal has been named lieutenant governor of Division 3 of the New York district of Key Club International. The Huntington High School junior attended a conference of the New York District Board last weekend in Albany.
The New York District of Key Club is organized into more than two dozen divisions. Ms. Segal heads one of those divisions. “That means I relay information between the New York District of Key Club and the schools in my division, which include Harborfields, Half Hollow Hills East, Half Hollow Hills West, Northport, Ward Melville and Huntington,” she said.
The junior’s academic schedule includes classes in Advanced Placement Spanish, AP English Language and Composition, AP US History, AP Biology, Pre-Calculus AB honors and Portfolio Development and Chamber Choir.
Ms. Segal is the vice president of Huntington High School’s Spanish Honor Society chapter. She is also a member of the National Honor Society as well as the Math Honor Society, Science Honor Society, English Honor Society, Social Studies Honor Society, Art Honor Society and Tri-M Music Honor Society.
The talented teenager sings with the high school’s a capella choir, is secretary of Huntington’s Key Club chapter and participates in the yearbook club, which is developing this year’s edition of The Huntingtonian.
This marks the first time in several years that a Huntington High School student has been named lieutenant governor with the New York district. “I’m pretty proud of it,” Ms. Segal said.
“Key Club International, a service leadership program of Kiwanis International, is the oldest and largest service organization for high school students and gives its members opportunities to provide service, build character and develop leadership skills,” according to the New York district’s website. “Started in California in 1925, Key Club today thrives on more than 5,000 high school campuses with a total membership of 270,000 in 38 countries.”
Huntington High School Key Club faculty advisors Gina Colica and Kelly Krycinski think highly of Ms. Segal. “Julia is an exceptional leader and a creative thinker,” Mrs. Colica said. “She is such an important part of our Key Club and the fact that she has been named New York district lieutenant governor makes us so proud.”
