In this issue! Greetings .................. ..1
Hello Club Secretaries and Treasurers! For those of you who do not know, my name is Reagan Sandoz and I have the honor of serving you as your Key Club District SecretaryTreasurer for this year. I could not be happier to serve this amazing organization with such great servant leaders. I know that we will have a year to remember. As Key Clubbers, we all have our own stories as to why we joined the organization in the first place. I joined Key Club as a freshman because I was in desperate need of service hours, (it is a requirement at my school). However, after being a part of my school’s club for a couple months, I noticed something special about it. I realized that Key Club is the only club in the world where leaders come together not only to serve, but to be part of a family that extends across the
world. I am so proud to call myself one of the 250,000 Key Clubbers across the globe. I am so proud to serve such an amazing district. And most importantly, I am so proud to be a part of such an incredible family. If you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns about Key Club or anything under the K-Family umbrella, please do not hesitate to contact me. Yours in Friendship and Service, Reagan Sandoz LaMissTenn District SecretaryTreasurer
