Our Motto Live to Serve, Love to Serve
Our Pledge I pledge to uphold the objects of Circle K International, to foster compassion and good will towards others through service and leadership, to develop my abilities and the abilities of all people, and to dedicate myself towards the realization of mankind’s potential.
Our Ideals • To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life. • To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships. • To promote the adoption and the application of high social, business and professional standards. • To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship. • To provide through Circle K clubs a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities. • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism, which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and goodwill.
Why CKI? PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT The skills developed and the opportunities experienced through Circle K International increase a student’s marketability for employment after college. Circle K International’s connection to Kiwanis promotes career networking between collegians and professionals as well. SERVICE Circle K is built off of service. Whether it’s cleaning a beach, feeding the homeless, or building a playground, Circle K’ers give their time and effort to make a difference. Service is perhaps the most rewarding and fulfilling of all of Circle K’s tenents in that members not only benefit the world around them but also benefit themselves. FELLOWSHIP Some of the best benefits are those that we develop with each other. Circle K’ers reign from all over the world and come together in service and leadership to form bonds that last for years to come. As Circle K’er, you will meet people from all walks of life and find friends that share common beliefs in the power of a helping hand.
INTANGIBLE BENEFITS • Campus Involvement • Lifetime Friendships • Personal Growth • Develop service initiatives • Resume Building • Social Opportunities • Career Contacts
Our Club History As of 2017
The Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts Circle K International Club was on the verge of becoming no more. The club had lost their status due to the fact that a majority of the members graduated. In 2017, member Antonio Mundell assumed presidency of the EMCVPA CKI Club. He, along with his team and Past Lieutenant Governor Anishaka Stewart worked vigourously together to get the club active and official again. With hardwork and dedication, the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts Circle K International Club was officially recharted by the Kiwanis Club of New Kingston on December 3, 2018.
President Giovanni Giovanni Gobern, Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts Circle K International Club President (2019/2020)
President Gio is currently pursuing a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Visual Communcations (Graphic Design). So far he has completed 2 out of 4 years in his program. Fun Fact: Giovanni has been designing since he was six years old. It all started with a blue house on a green hill in Microsoft Paint.
I deem it a great honour to be writing this address for our next issue of Look!, our club’s bulletin magazine. I always speak of this staircase to the success of our goals. We are all eager to succeed, but as students, we need to understand that all staircases are not the same. Some may be built of out of wood, of concrete and steel, indicating that all our stories are different. Staircases may also be differentiated by its number of steps; these steps have specific challenges that will teach you lessons on our journey upwards. These steps are what are going to mould us as individuals, therefore we need to be prepared for the next step. In taking that step forward, these same steps are going to have holes in them and they are often inevitable. Some of these steps may be slanted and some may just not be there at all and when moving forward, you end up right back where it all started. When going on our journey, we need to ensure that our backpacks are filled with the necessary tools to fix any obstacle we may face when climbing those stairs. Don’t reach a step then turn around, that is not how goals are accomplished. We need to be ready. Not everybody’s success is straight forward. Haven’t you realized that sometimes you walk up a stair then you stop, and when you turn around, it’s all-new set of stairs? When reaching our goals, we must walk with our determination because reaching one objective, is not reaching the final goal. We have made it so far, What’s Next? LOOK! At our destination. LOOK! At what is necessary to reach that destination. LOOK! In your backpacks, are we ready for the obstacles we are going to encounter when arriving at our destination? As you browse Issue 2 of this year’s bulletin magazine, analyze what we have done, see our highlights and our accomplishments, however, when reading, LOOK! At yourself and ask this question; What role do I have to play in providing service to my community? We have started climbing, but what is the next step. Happy Reading. Happy LOOK!-ing

Meet our Chairpersons “You can’t spell “fundraising” without “fun”. Being Chairperson of FUNdraising has been a defining moment of my CKI and college experience so far. It’s a position that I am very passionate about. I enjoy planning fundraisers and brainstorming interesting ideas for sales that will capture people’s attention.
I saw the need for this position last year as a prospect member while volunteering for bake sales and became determined to be more involved in subsequent years. As with every position there has been challenges along the way but I approach each challenge as an opportunity to learn and improve .”
Hello I’m Omar Eubanks, Chairperson of Fellowship EMCVPA for the tenure 2019-2020.
During my time of being a Chairperson it has been nothing short of a blessing. Being able to lead other persons in service and fellowship while having fun has always been the most enjoyable experience within my tenure. I’ve met some really amazing persons during this time and wouldn’t trade it for the world. #VybzCheck #LiveToServe
