Introducing: D27’s Divisional Team! LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR BRUCE MERCADO For 17 years I have lived in Stockton California, home of the red sporting, Division 27 Grizzlies – family to Region 16. My freshman year I had a passion to be involved in Key Club, and it was that passion that pushed me to be a part of the Middle College High School Key Club. This eventually helped me reach the position of Lieutenant Governor. Other than being a Key Club fanatic, I value my family, friends, computer, and smiling. I enjoy swimming and diving, and do both competitively. Full of spirit, I’m always ready to serve others.
EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT JUSTINE CHANG Hello Grizzlies! My name is Justine Chang and I am delighted to be your Division D27 Executive Assistant for the 2011-2012 year. I have been a grizzly since my freshman year. Although Key Club is a priority for me, it is only one of the many things I enjoy. I also love snowboarding, playing Call of Duty, drawing tribal tattoos, and eating. Hip hop dance is a personal passion of mine. I intend to join a prestigious crew upon entering college. Academics, Key Club, and church are very important to me. You can always catch me full of spirit and enthusiasm. Don’t be afraid to say hello! Although I am a grizzly, I won’t bite!
EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT MEGAN WONG Hello! My name is Megan Wong and I am a junior at Franklin High. My love for Key Club and serving the community began when I was in the fifth grade. My love for it pushed me to join Key Club in high school and to eventually make it one of my top priorities. Key Club was the first club I joined in freshman year and I have enjoyed every minute of it since! In addition to Key Club, I also enjoy swimming, badminton, water polo, playing the piano, and enjoying a good book. I look forward to being able to serve you as the 2011-2012 Division Executive Assistant!
EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT SYDNEY TOWLE Hello everyone! My name is Sydney and I am excited to be one of the new executive assistants and I look forward to helping out Division 27 to make sure this year is a fun and exciting one like the last has been. Community service and helping out is kind of my thing with over 200 hours already under my belt. When I’m not doing Key Club stuff I’m nerding out with comics, anime, conventions, you name it. I hope that this year will be another fantastic one!
DIVISIONAL NEWS EDITOR EMILY WILBURN Hey, my name is Em, and the things I love most in life are junk food, roller coasters, and art. I’m well known at my school for being a grammar nazi, attempting to organize questionable events (a certain water balloon fight comes to mind), and running everywhere before falling asleep during lunchtimes. On weekends I sleep, draw, write, sing, read, volunteer for Key Club, and sleep some more. I am sixteen years old, I’ve lived in Stockton for my entire life, and I still believe I can change the world.
