IN THIS ISSUE!
Time to Start a New Year! April’s coming to a close, and I’m sure many of you know what that means. The end of one Key Club year and the beginning of a new one! Now you’re probably wondering who in the world is sending you this colorful newsletter. Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Katherine Lauer; your new Lieutenant Governor! What exactly is a Lieutenant Governor you ask? A Lieutenant Governor is a liaison between the clubs in their Division (ours being Division 12) and their District (the Texas-Oklahoma District). In other words if you ever have a problem with your club or just want to talk, I’m your girl!
Here’s a little bit about me: I go to San Angelo Central High School, and along with acting as secretary for my school's junior class and Key Club for the past year, I also serve as my school’s French Club historian. In my spare time I love singing and playing the cello and piano. Now that I’ve told you about me, I want to get to know you! It would be great if you could email me a short paragraph introducing yourself and telling me all about you. I can’t wait to start off this year with all 5 of Division 12’s amazing clubs! Let’s make it a memorable one!
A New Year!
Your New District Board

Fun at The 62nd Annual TexasOklahoma District
This year was my first year in Key Club, and my first year to attend DCON. I love being a part of Key Club, and going to DCON made me love it even more. One of the best parts of convention is getting to meet new people. Everyone I met was so friendly and just as excited to be there as I was. There were so many smiles and everyone was so positive. The atmosphere there is amazing, and it’s awesome to be a part of it. It’s great to know that there are so many of us out there that care about serving our community and making a difference. The first night at convention, we attended the service fair. We saw what other clubs were doing as their service projects and presented ours. We all gave each other ideas for this upcoming year’s service projects. The next night was the opening session. Something that really opened my eyes was our Key Note speaker, Cory Johnson. His speech was uplifting and, I think I can say, moved us all. He was born with Cerebral Palsy but he has not let it stop him from living life. His story really touched my heart and it showed me that anyone of us can make a difference and we shouldn’t let anything stop us from doing so.
On Saturday, was the Leadership Luncheon. There we saw the T-O Quiz Bowl. It’s a trivia game where Key Club members from Texas and Oklahoma compete against each other. We got to see Texas beat Oklahoma for the fourth year in a row! Then we had the Awards Banquet that night, where we saw the Talent and Oratory competitions and awards were given out. Each club cheered as they heard their name called for an award. After all that excitement, there was the Governor’s Ball which was extremely fun. Everything ended with the Farewell Breakfast where we inducted our new District Board. The convention was definitely a success and I am really glad I went. The forums, sessions, and banquets were all great, informative, and fun. I enjoyed every second of it and had so much fun with the members of our club that went. Attending the convention is something that I would encourage every Key Club member to do because I am positive they will love it. I loved it, and I can’t wait for the 63rd T-O District Convention! --Rebecca Bingham Central HS Key Club Secretary
Divisional Project: Got DUC (Diabetes Under Control) ? Diabetes affects the lives of nearly 26 million children and adults in this country and another 79 million with pre-diabetes. If current trends continue, one in three children will face a future with diabetes. The mission of the American Diabetes Association is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
My goal for this project is for each club to do at least 1 project to promote Diabetes awareness and raise funds for prevention! This project will take place from April 2011- March 1st 2012 *all information came from the diabetes.org site
How To Help:
Further Contact Information: American Diabetes Association 1701 North Beauregard Street Alexandria, VA 22311 1-800-DIABETES (800-342-2383)

Get Involved! o Spread awareness throughout your community! Explain to people how to control diabetes and the importance of eating healthy for diabetics. o The more people that know about diabetes, the more likely they’ll donate!
