What Is CNH KIWIN'S Key Club? We are a District of Key Club International. We are located in California, Nevada, and Hawaii. There are over 50 clubs with approximately 2,500 members and growing. We promote good citizenship through service. CNH KIWIN'S perform service deeds with fellow members to improve their schools and communities. Local service gives KIWIN'S members the satisfaction of seeing the results of their efforts. In most cases, CNH KIWIN'S clubs are based on a high school campus under the guidance of their Faculty Advisor(s). Some clubs may function off campus under the authority of their Kiwanis Advisor(s).

What Is Emerald Division? Emerald Division is one of the nine Divisions that make up the CNH KIWIN'S Key Club District. Emerald Division covers all San Diego County and currently has three schools- Rancho Bernardo HS, Otay Ranch HS, and Olympian HS. Our Divisional mascot is an otter!

Lt.G INTRODUCTION LETTER Hello everyone! I would like to introduce myself, I am Julianna Pantoja the 2018-2019 Emerald Lieutenant Governor for CNH KIWIN’S. I am a incoming senior attending Otay Ranch HS. Before taking on the role of Lieutenant Governor, I was the Kiwanis Family & Foundation Chair for the CNH KIWIN’S District. Working closely with the District last term, I had a chance to learn a lot from the other Lieutenant Governor’s. I have seen what has worked, what hasn’t, and what I can take from these different divisions and adapt it to better serve my Division. One of my main goals this term is to increase communication with all of the clubs within the Division. I will be reaching out directly more consistently to all the Club Officers, increasing activity on our social media accounts, along with hosting more Divisional events to allow members from any club the opportunity to meet other members throughout the Division. I am excited for what this year has in store for Emerald Division!

Along with this, I would also like to expand our division to more schools in San Diego County. I am currently in contact with two new schools that we can charter for in the future. I also, hope to bring back schools we have lost in the past few years. Finally, I hope we can all work together to get more people to participate in community service projects and plan more fundraisers! With that being said, if you ever have sort of questions or concerns through out the term, feel free to contact me! I am here to support YOU! Julianna Pantoja 2018-2019 CNH KIWIN’S Emerald Lieutenant Governor (619)942-1805

OLYMPIAN HIGH SCHOOL LAURYN EDWARDS

Hi I’m Lauryn Edwards and I go to Olympian High School. I’ve always been involved with sports like track and soccer and in my recent years of high school I joined many leadership programs; such as link crew, which is a freshman mentoring program at my school. I often volunteer at my elementary school, being an assistant for their theater program. This year I went to the Youth Rotary camp and when I came back I wanted to do even more for my community so I’m excited to join Kiwanis.

I am so excited to have this position because during my summer camps I always love to participate in the fun songs and chants that I know I will be able to adapt, and create new ones, for KIWIN'S. I want to encourage and spread joy to all of the KIWIN'S, and through what I hope to create, want to inspire them to continue celebrating what this club does for each of our communities as well as how it creates a whole new community of dedicated individuals who all have a goal similar to what I want to promote as Spirit Chair:  spreading kindness and togetherness through helping one another to foster a healthy and kind community.
