The John R. Kirk chapter of the Blue Key Honor Society is a small organization composed of male upperclassmen at Truman State University. We strive to better the lives of others through a commitment to service in and around the University and Kirksville community. We believe that a life is best spent sharing time and helping others, reflected in the Blue Key motto, “Serving, I Live.”
