When I was in high school, I was really involved in Key Club. It was the one thing that kept me grounded as I moved 3 high schools in 4 years. Soooooo, when Jeff, one of the Assistant Administrators, asked me to stay on as an Convention Intern after I graduated, I stayed. And then I graduated from college, and I stayed. And now a full 6 years after getting involved I'm still staying, which must mean something. I guess I like it? :)
This year, Jason was sweet enough to come along for the entire weekend and help out and I think he's hooked now! When people ask me what I do, it's a bit hard to explain what the role as T-O Events Specialist entails. I handle some of the logistics for the convention that caters to over 1,100 Key Clubbers and their sponsors, I help set the stage, I help write scripts, I set up teleprompters, I pick all the music for all events and a lot more. Our convention team consists of 5 people, and even with Jason helping, we were always busy and putting in 16 hour days.
