UPCOMING EVENTS! Division 14 Rally/ Biloxi High School/ October 29, 2011
What happened at ICON in Phoenix?! This year was my first year attending ICON and it was one of the best experiences I ever had! Not only did I get to meet people from all over the world, but these people became real close friends and Key Club just brought us even closer. I also learned how the International Structure worked and was given the opportunity to vote for our International Board at the House of Delegates. Having the chance to attend ICON was a blessing and I really hope that I will be able to bring as many key clubbers from Division 14 to the next International Convention in Orlando, FL. I encourage everyone to attend ICON because it will be a Key Club experience no one will ever forget!
We walked around for ages at the Grand Canyon!
Welcome the new International Board!

What is our Governor’s Project for 2011-2012 year?
Hello Mighty LaMissTenn! Project Inspire is a year-long project dedicated to helping children that suffer from pediatric cancer by donating time, money, and love to St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. The reason I created this project is because I am INSPIRED by these children that live with a disease they did not ask for but still make the most of each day. I see a strength and a light inside of them that I do not see anywhere else. My goals for this project are to raise $2000 by District Convention and host two 5k walks/runs and a dance marathon. I also hope to have a day in the spring where Key Clubbers can visit St. Jude and play with the patients. I will need YOUR help Key Club, Kiwanis, Circle K, and all contributors! Together we are INSPIRED to give these children a brighter future!
With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. The effects of the disease are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch.
Volunteer for these programs!
Yours in service, Gabby Murphy LaMissTenn District Governor
K.A.M.P Kiwanis is a summer camp experience provided to children with disabilities caused by Childhood Rheumatoid Arthritis or Autism. These children have the same dreams of a great summer as other kids. K.A.M.P. Kiwanis fulfills those dreams. [Erica (Gulfport High), Dylan]

Back to School Tips Make sure to have all of your school supplies, which include pencil(s), pens, paper, and your textbooks! Arrive to class at least 5 minutes early; so you will never be late for class. Have plenty of sleep the night before at least 8 hours or else you’ll end up sleeping in class. Trust me! Eat a good breakfast before going to school or else you’ll be more concentrated on food than your school work. If you’re sneaky, eat a few snacks during class or during break. School is a place for education, not socialization. So pay attention to your studies and not your buddies.
