DCON Special th

From Friday, March 25 to Sunday, March 27, eighteen Key Clubbers from Mount Si went and joined the fun at the annual Pacific Northwest District Convention. DCON has a few main purposes- to bring Key Clubbers from different schools, cities, and states together to share service ideas, to elect a new district board (the officers for the whole Pacific Northwest region, from Northern California to British Columbia and Alaska), and to build up spirit and enthusiasm for what Key Club is all about- service. You haven’t experienced true Key Club spirit until you’ve cheered “We feel good!” along with more than 1500 teenagers from five states and one province. Read on for more convention highlights…

DCON News Meet your new Lieutenant Governor The new Lieutenant Governor for Division 28 is Kaileen Dougherty, a junior at Issaquah High School. She is on the IHS Cross Country and Track teams. She’s also very involved in her community. This past year she served as president of the IHS Key Club. She went to Key Club’s International Convention last summer. All of us who met her at DCON were struck by her enthusiasm and friendliness. Her goals this year include visiting all of the clubs in her division more than once and organizing some inter-club events, so we can look forward to meeting Key Clubbers from other schools. She also hopes to double the number of DCON attendees from Division 28, and to recognize members and projects that really stand out.

New District Board After hearing the candidates’ speeches and asking them questions, two delegates from each club voted on this year’s District Board. Our delegates, Heidi and Lynell, did a great job and the board looks very promising. District Governor: Varun Awasthi Secretary: Emerson Kim Treasurer: Ariel Orasud Bulletin Editor: Mary Alice Peng (from Division 28!) Delegates also voted to endorse candidates for international positions, meaning we support them to run at ICON in June. International President endorsement: Annie Lewandowski International Trustee Endorsement: Josiah Zitterkob, Yoo Eun Kim

Best Website Award Thanks to all the hard work of Jenny Green, our club won the award for Best Website! We were the only club from Division 28 (Bellevue, Interlake, Issaquah, Liberty, Mount Si, Mercer Island, Newport, Sammamish, and Skyline) to win an award.

The Key Club Cheer

Hey Key Clubbers, how do you feel? We feel good! Oh, we feel so good! (Uh!) Double it up! (Uh, uh!) Triple it up! (Uh, uh, uh!) One long uh! (Uuuuh!) Rapper style! (Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh.) If you go to DCON or Seattle Rally, be prepared to yell this at the top of your lungs. The division with the most spirit wins the Spirit Stick (And better seats at next year’s DCON), so learn the cheer and yell it loud!
