Joyce has placed Key Club as a priority ahead of her other activities, and her dedication has not gone unnoticed!

THANK YOU FOR APPLYING! :D It is great to see all the individuals that are willing to stepup to take a leading position in making a difference at our school and global community! With that being said, you are all amazing! It truly is a blessing to see just how spirited and dedicated each and every one of you is! The next step in this process will be an INTERVIEW! I know some of you will start to have heart palpitations, simply after reading the word “interview,” but be assured, the interview is just a way for the current Board of Officers to get to know you better, make sure you are well informed of what your position entails, etc. Interviews will be held February 13th through the 17th afterschool! Sign-ups will be posted on a first-come-firstserve basis from February 6th-10th. We suggest that all candidates continue to research the position they applied for, ask questions, and prepare as best you can! Remember, BEE YOURSELF! I salute you all! It is not an easy decision to put yourself out there and apply to become an officer! Just by showing interest and running with that interest you have shown great dedication and courage! For those of you that may be asking, “When will the club vote?” the answer is: February 20th! Good luck to each and every one of you!

Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better. -Harry S. Truman I cannot wait to see how you all will make 2012-2013 the best Key Club Year yet!

DCON Notice what event the pictures on the cover and “In this issue” page are from? You guessed it! District Convention 2011! DCON 2011 was the first DCON that CHHS Key Club ever had representatives attend and though we only had six members– we made sure the entire CNH District was aware of just how much spirit CHHS Key Club has!

This year, the Officer Board has set a goal of, at least, DOUBLING OUR ATTENDANCE! That’s right Key Clubbers, WE WANT YOU at DCON 2012! It will be at Santa Clara, CA from April 13th-15th! The club will work out transportation, etc. Important Details: Convention Registration Cost- $160* Hotel Costs– TBD* *Do not let the price discourage you! Chino Hills High School Key Club can help you cover the costs! If you are interested in attending, be sure to let an officer know immediately so that we can begin to work out ways to fundraise and help as much as we can! :D

Division Updates! Region 13 Conclave You have seen her at our General Meetings, you have seen her at Division events, and you have seen her hosting DCMs! However, our Lieutenant Governor Jocelyn Sy, is nearing the end of her term! (Tears) As such, the time to elect the new Lieutenant Governor is nearing! At Conclave, club delegates will vote on the next leader of Division 15! This Conclave is special though, as it will be for our entire Region 13 Family! Don’t miss this opportunity to see the candidates, hear their inspirational speeches, and find out first-hand who the next leader of Division 15 will be! (As well as other the other Divisions in our Region). It will be February 18th at the Diamond Bar AQMD Building! 12pm-5pm!

Senior Reminder

The end of our Senior Year is approaching fast! I cannot believe that in only a handful on months we will be walking up on stage receiving our High School Diplomas! However, don’t loose sight of Key Club as you get caught up in Senior Year’s second semester! Keep earning hours to earn your graduation stole and keep on attending meetings! Class of 2012, each and every one of you have been crucial in helping the club grow and develop over the years. You can all sympathize with me, in saying, after four years the change that we have left on the club is far beyond noticeable! We have molded the club into one– excuse me—THEE BEST CLUB ON CAMPUS! We have made peaks in service hours, attendance, membership, and so forth! Let’s end our final Key Club Year with a BANG! Let’s show the other Key Club classes just how dedicated and spirited we are! Let us continue to leave our mark on this wonderful club and immaculate organization!
