Put 1,100 teenagers in one room and what do you get? Energy, enthusiasm and excitement! Put 110 teachers in one room and what do you get? Suggestions, instructions and commands. Last weekend I attended the Capital District Key Club convention in Baltimore with a great group of area youth. We heard motivational speakers, learned about service projects, attended workshops, considered candidates' platforms and elected new district leaders. It was as close to a political convention — minus the politics — that these kids will get at this age. The weekend was educational and fun, if not just a tad bit exhausting.
