The success of a program is often based on the person at the helm. If this is true, the Barranca K-Kids program couldn’t ask for more.
The Asset Award-winning Sharon Allen, of Barranca Elementary, not only fits the bill of the woman at the helm, but also wears it well.
K-Kids is the elementary version of Kiwanis, known as Key Club at the high school level and Builder’s Club at the middle school level. The goal of the elementary program is community service.
Local Kiwanian, Morrie Pongratz, believes that the faculty position for the success of K-Kids is important and that Allen holds the keys to the castle.
“She is warm and friendly and she gives up her time and her classroom space,” Pongratz said. “Sharon is willing to spend the after-class time teaching the students about community service.”
The students follow the simple mantra of building community through objectives of working together, developing leadership potential, being loyal and having strong moral character.
Their pledge is: “As a K-Kid, I promise to serve my neighborhood and my school; I will show respect toward my environment; and I will try to make the world a better place in which to live.”
