Division 26 LTG Election Please welcome Kevin Ngo from Mt. Rainier High School as your 2014-2015 Lieutenant Governor! Kevin was elected among the three candidates at the January DCM at the Southwest Library on Saturday. Each candidate had to prepare a speech and answer questions, and two delegates from each Division 26 school casted their votes to select the winning candidate. Even though Garfield’s candidate, Bradley Kim, did not win, every candidate in the election did a great job and deserves recognition for it!
MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR Dear Key Clubbers, I hope you enjoyed your long weekend, especially those of you who decided to spend it volunteering at the MLK Day of Service instead! Saturday was the January DCM, aka the LtG election rally for Division 26. After DCON, the old officers, including the current club officer board and LtG, will retire and be replaced by newly elected officers. The club meetings for this week and next week will be dedicated to selecting the president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, bulletin editor, and fundraising chair for the next Key Club year. Please do drop in and vote for a candidate! I will be running for vice president, so I’d really appreciate your support. Jennifer Wang is also running unopposed for the position of 2014-2015 bulletin editor, so she will be replacing me in the coming months! As a reminder, DCON forms are due absolutely no later than January 30th. Your hours are also due by February, and even if you’ve already achieved the required 30-60 hours, I encourage you to be one of those people on the 65 hours list! You can do it, I believe in you! Reanne Wong
