Official Newsletter of Division 3 North of The Texas-Oklahoma Key Club District

Carolina’s Key Club Corner Caring is our way of life J In this issue! Buenos Dias/Tardes/Noche (whatever time you read this),3N J! So I just want to start off by saying that I am so honored to be serving you as your next Lieutenant Governor. Our division is the strongest and most competitive division in all of Texas and Oklahoma, so thank you for being fantastic! :) So for those who do not know me, my name is Carolina Hernandez, and I will be a senior next year at Cypress Falls High School. I have been in Key Club since my freshman year in high school and I absolutely love it. Key Club is near and dear to my heart so let me do what Key Club has taught me how to do best, to serve, so let me serve you as your new 3N Lieutenant Governor J So please don’t be afraid to call, text, email, fb message, or tweet me. I am here to help you throughout the year and represent you on the District level. For the upcoming year I plan on maintaining the mighty 3N legacy, but I am going to need your help in order to do that. So how can you do that? Well by doing and submitting your monthly reports every month by the 5th of every month. 3N’s consistent reporting has placed 7 out of the now 11 clubs in our division in the TOP 25 (the most out of any division in the district), and I am aiming for all of us to be recognized in the TOP 25 next year. I also want us to continue serving our community in every way possible so start planning service projects for the year especially the summer months so you can keep your members busy, because service never stops. Be on the lookout for my 1st PCM, which will potentially be on Sunday June 10th at the Lone Star College Cy Fair’s Library. Also be checking your emails consistently everyday because I will be updating you on everything and anything Key Club J (No worries I won’t spam your inbox, but you can spam mine if you want as long as it is about Key Club: P) I look forward to working with each and every one of you this upcoming year. Yours in Service,

Carolina Hernandez

Kudos to Cy Woods Key Club and Taylor Key Club for sending in theirs already!

Helpful Tidbits o

Also be checking your emails and respond to whatever emails the district office sends you about ICON ASAP! I will be attending ICON and I am super excited to get new ideas and information about Key Club to bring back to the Division J Don’t worry for those who cannot attend this year there is always next year’s ICON which will be held in Washington D.C!

o 1st PCM !!!!!: Get excited and throw a dance party(jk but that would be awesome if you did). My 1st PCM will be held on June 10th after all AP Exams, SATS, ACTS, Graduations, Proms, and Finals are done and over. It will be from 3-5 pm at Lone Star College Library located in Cy Fair ( if any changes occur I will be emailing you about them). I would really like to see every club in attendance with a great turnout! We will be going the latest T-O district information and having fun activities to get to know Key Club a little bit more. This is a great opportunity for you everyone in the division to get to know each other , so invite all officers ! :) I would like each of the Presidents to present a slide on their plans for the summer as well. Food will be available! J o MONTHLY REPORTS –Lets keep the mighty 3N legacy strong and keep on submitting those monthly reports! J If you want to be in the top 25 next year ( 7 out of our now 11 clubs in our division were in it this year), SEND IN YOUR MR’S ON TIME! You must send a hard copy of the monthly reports in a manila envelope(decorate them and do the task of the month which this month is to list 3 goals for your club ) to Kevin Duong and a electronic copy emailed to me (, our Regional Advisor, Ms.Pomorski, your Kiwanis Advisor, and our Division Kiwanis Advisor, Mr.Crowl. Monthly reports are due on the 5 TH of every month.






Start planning summer activities for your members and Builders Club kiddos. Key Club is year round so just because the school year end doesn’t mean service does too J. Caring is our way of life! Hold officer instillations/ banquets (they count towards points on the annual achievement report). If you are mentioned in my newsletter then use it as publicity for points on your MR. Start planning for Key Club recruitment, tshirts, etc. now J so then later you can just focus on service instead of trying to get everything organized. Hold officer-training days over the summer J Great way to bond and build a better board for next year.( points on the achievement report) Notify me and invite me to meetings and anything Key Club. I would love to visit and work you guys! J I can not wait to work with you all!
