Swann named Key Club Lt. Governor

Sellers Swann isn’t a stranger to speaking or answering questions under pressure.

The Greenville High School junior and reigning Miss GHS’s experience on stage helped pave the way for her to be elected as the Lt. Governor for District 17 of Key Club.

Swann won her election at a district meeting on Sunday at Andalusia High School.

To win the office, Swann had to write a two-minute speech and hold a three-minute caucus. She competed against one other Key Club member in her district.

Swann said when she started participating in Key Club as a freshman, people were urging her to participate in elections.

“Our new sponsor gave me the paper work and if I wanted to do it this year,” she said. “I thought that it would be a good idea if someone won from Butler County. I thought it would help strengthen our Key Club (at GHS) and Kiwanis Club.”

Swann will be penned as Lt. Governor at the Alabama state Key Club convention in March. Her duties over the next year will include writing a monthly newsletter, attending all conventions, board meetings, officer training, making sure the Key Clubs in her district pay their dues and putting together a fundraiser for her district.

District 17 represents clubs from Butler, Covington, Lowndes, Crenshaw and Pike counties.

“One of the things I’d like to do is really strengthen the club at Greenville High School,” Swann said.

For her service project idea, Swann said she’s planning on getting all of the Key Clubs together and hold a closed blanked drive to assist the homeless in the area.

Swann is the daughter of Jeffry and Julie Swann of Greenville.

After high school, Swann plans on attending Auburn University, but is getting ahead as she is currently enrolled with LBWCC in the duel enrollment program.
