Meet the Governor Hello! My name is Rylee Briel and I am serving as the Indiana District Governor for the 2017-2018 key club year. A bit about me-- I live in Valparaiso, Indiana, where I grew up with my 3 sisters and 2 brothers. My favorite things to do (aside from community service) is baking, reading, and playing card games with my family. I hope to attend Purdue University to study Agricultural Business and Marketing. As many of you, I am passionate about volunteering and all-things key club. With that, I look to further raise awareness and funds for our Riley Three Wishes Campaign and I am confident that with your help we will be able to make great strides towards achieving our $100,000 pledge. I am eager to begin this year with the Indiana District. Never forget-- peace, love, key club!

International Trustee Introduction Hello, Indiana District! My name is Alisa Nguyen and it is my privilege to serve as your 2017-2018 International Trustee! As trustee, I work closely with three assigned districts, Indiana, Alabama, and New York, to ensure that international updates can reach all levels of our organization. In addition, I will work to foster a relationship between our sister districts, provide resources and advice, and overall, help you in achieving your goals. I currently live in Sierra Vista, Arizona and am proudly a part of the Southwest District. Here, I attend Buena High School as an incoming senior. My Key Club journey started freshman year where I have since served on the club, division, and district boards, most recently as District Governor. I hope to use my experiences to serve as a resource for you while representing your voice on the International scale. As we progress throughout our service year, I encourage you to maximize your Key Club involvement and take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way. Key Club serves as an outlet for incredible growth alongside likeminded servant leaders who can bring change to many lives. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, comments, concerns, or if you just want to talk, because I am here to serve you. Thank you for your passion and dedication to service, and I look forward to the year that lies ahead of us!

Happy Key Clubbing,

Key Leader Information “Key Leader! YOU KNOW!!!” Trying to explain going to key leader is so difficult to do because you leave with so many amazing and fun memories that there are too many to talk about. Going into key leader, I was anxious because I knew only a few other people who were going and I was worried about meeting new people. Once I got there I realized there was nothing to worry about. Everyone who goes to key leader is so welcoming and friendly to everyone they meet, it makes it impossible to be in a bad mood while there. We all get to eat all of our meals together and were encouraged to sit with new people everyday so it was very easy to not only meet new people, but to make friends. We went to lessons everyday where we learn all about different types of leadership and of what it means to be a good leader. I went in expecting to meet a few new people and learn a couple things, but I left with so much more than that. - Lily Kaiser Key Leader is a weekend experimental program for today’s young leaders sponsored by Kiwanis International. This life changing event focuses on service leadership and focuses on self development as a leader. I attended

my first Key Leader in November of 2016 and I had no idea what to expect. I was a new Lieutenant Governor and so I knew it was important for me to attend in order to gain more experiences in hopes that I can also apply what I learn into my term as LTG. I’m the type of person that loves making new friends and feels very comfortable in any social setting, but for some reason on the way there, I was really anxious. I was nervous to see who all would be there and was worried about how friendly everyone would be. Once I arrived, I had noticed that the environment was completely the opposite of what I was expecting. Everyone was so welcoming and so friendly from the minute I got in the room. People were chatting and eating with all the new friends they’ve made and it was very easy for me to fit myself in with the group as well. In that moment, I felt so much more calm and at ease knowing that I’m in an environment surrounded by the most friendliest people ever. The first official day of Key Leader rolled around and that included large and small group workshops, team-building activities, and discussions lead by a keynote speaker. Over the course of the weekend, we were asked questions like what our morals were and how important they were to us. People all over the room raised their hands eager to share their morals with the group. Seeing that made me realized that although the vast majority of us have never met or personally knew each other that well, I could tell that everyone was getting comfortable with each other. Key Leader has a way of uniting everyone, and I will always be grateful for the opportunities it has provided me with.

3 Wishes Campaign At the Indiana District ‘District Leadership Convention’ in April 2017, Indiana Key Club pledged to donate $100,000 to Riley Children's Hospital. “3 Wishes Campaign.” This money will go to support this worthy cause for children with autism all across Indiana. This campaign will work to ensure young children throughout the entire state of Indiana receive effective care for neurodevelopmental and behavioral disorders, including autism and developmental delay. In Indiana, the average age of diagnosis is 63 months which is nearly twice the national average! In order to diagnose children earlier than they are not, Riley Hospital has worked to create 9 Early Evaluation Hubs located all across the state. These hubs will reach all children so that they can be diagnosed with autism at the proper age and help create a better quality of life. Specifically, the money that we raise will provide training and tools for the hubs, training for physicians that will work at the hubs, and data collection and analysis to ensure and sustain top quality programming. In order to raise this money and meet our goal, we need to fundraise! Get fueled and energized to fundraise for Riley. Be creative and utilize other club ideas! For more information about the 3 Wishes Campaign please visit the Indiana District Key Club Website or contact the Indiana District’s Riley Liaisons Mallory Watson and Hannah Quirk.
