The Sting!



Div. 30 Jelly Fish, April newsletter Introduction

I would just like to start off by saying that I am so excited to have a start for my term as your Lieutenant Governor! For those of you who read Caitlin’s newsletter, you saw a little bit about me, but my number one goal as your Lt. Governor is to be as helpful as I can! Starting with communication, because I have experienced bad communication, and it’s just stressful, so I’m going to do the best in my ability to keep good communication throughout our Division! And I want to keep the main purpose for key club at large, and that would be to serve! As key club members, it is our job to demonstrate our leadership and show others what we are truly about! I thank you all being committed to your clubs, and I will be seeing you all very soon!
