She isn’t easy to describe – a ball of energy, passionate for community service, her exemplary leadership ability and a smile for everyone! Key Club and CKI peers describe her as detail oriented, a team player and a problem solver.

At South Plantation High School, Jennifer was an active member in Key Club for four years, holding positions as club secretary and vice president and in her senior year as Lt. Governor for Division 24A. That year she was presented with the prestigious Walter Zeller Fellowship for her efforts in raising funds for The ELIMINATE Project and received the prestigious Leader of Leaders award from the Florida District of Key Club Governor. Her community service went far beyond expectations and included projects for Cleveland Clinic Hospital, Horses and the Handicapped, Big Brothers and Sisters and Temple Kol Ami Emanu-El.

Following high school graduation, she entered the University of Florida, where she is studying for her bachelor’s degree in Dietetics and then expects to pursue her dietetics internship as a registered dietician. Stopping there? Not Jennifer. Next goal – to earn her masters and became a Physician Assistant.

Despite a full curriculum at UF, her Kiwanis service continues as a member of CKI, serving as the Florida District Kiwanis Family Relations Chair and then UF Kiwanis Family Relations Chair.

One small glitch in these plans, however – the school campus is currently closed made necessary during the COVID 19 pandemic and now only offering on line classes. So Jennifer is at home with her family in Plantation, FL.

BUT, difficult times call for innovative thinking – and Jennifer is up to that task. With her family’s blessing, she has turned one of the rooms in her home into a sewing room where she is making masks to be donated to UF Shands Hospital Unit 42 Pediatric Oncology and Immunology in Gainesville where she volunteers through a UF affiliated organization called Footprints, with the families and children battling childhood cancer.

I wanted to make sure the kids know we are still here and we still care about them and want to play with them when we are allowed back in”, says Jennifer Moscovitch.

Thank you Jennifer, for being that bright light in the middle of a dark moment in history. Your servant leadership has been and continues to be an inspiration to all who have the privilege to serve with you!
