[A WORD FROM YOUR PRESIDENT] CRYSTAL WU “Hey there! My name is Crystal Wu and I am the President of Rancho HS Key Club. This is my second year being president and also my last year as a Rancho Ram. I want to make this year LEGENDARY! Some of my goals include an increase of members by at least 20 from last year, unification of the board members, more service projects with other Key Clubs and Kiwanis, a 30 hour increase to each member's service hour sheets, and sharing tons of blissful memories to smile about! I intent to accomplish this with the help of my supportive officers and my determination to leave as a memorable role model for my future president~ “

[A WORD FROM YOUR VICE PRES.] VINCENT MONTEZUMA Hello everyone, my name is Vincent Montezuma and I am proud to be your Vice President for the 2014-2015 school year. One of my goals this year is to increase member activity and the overall amount of members in our club. I plan to do this with incentives and more events to spark their interest. Although I would rather have more active members than more overall members, still both would be very nice I am looking forward to the next school year, thank you!

[A WORD FROM YOUR S.A.A] LORENZO SISON “When I began this school year, becoming an officer was the furthest thing from my mind. I intended on just being a member, and that was it. But I saw the dark future that key club had coming to it. See, the club was dying and it seemed that it would be gone by the next year. So I stepped up. I aim to bring to the pain. But constructive pain. As the new S.A.A. I will bring Key Club out of its dark recesses and bring it in the light for all to see. I can not do that alone. I can not even shoulder most of the burden. That must fall on the new members. But I will help them. I will nurture them. I will strengthen them. And by the time I leave, they will be me and all will be right in the world. My plans involve organization. The problem with Key Club is it's lack thereof. As of now, we have no idea of what the heck is going on. I plan on helping the other officers with this, whether with planning events or with paperwork. I am not a very hands on person in Key Club. I honestly prefer to do the club work rather than the volunteering. And right now, that's exactly what the club needs. I look forward to an exciting future year and an even better one after it. “

[A WORD FROM YOUR TREASURER] ERICA LEE “It is a new year and that means new officers are to be trained to help achieve an even better Key Club. Congratulations! You are now my new officers!” First day on the job, my club adviser gave me a rundown of how a Treasurer’s job was to be executed. “When handling money, never be alone. Keep all the receipts. Maintain a healthy relationship with the banker. Create fundraisers. Maintain budgets.” It wasn’t anything I hadn’t already known from when the past. Nonetheless, one thing that caught my attention was that my club adviser informed me that there has not been a single Treasurer dedicated to their full terms as officers. “It is almost like a curse!” After hearing this I came up with a little bucket list for myself so I have goals to accomplish while serving as an officer. 1. Commit to my full time being Treasurer 2. Communicate amongst my fellow members, officers, advisers, and admin. 3. Spread the word of Key Club – acknowledge others what Key Club really is about “Good is never good enough” – Always find ways to improve This is only a small tidbit of what I expect myself to accomplish during my term. Believe me this list will continue to grow throughout the year. I'm Erica Lee, I’ve been given the baton, I will continue to work hard, and make sure I do not fall behind!

[A WORD FROM YOUR HISTORIAN] REI SANTA ANA “In that pivotal moment, I was the new Key Club Historian. Hello you guys, my name is Rei and I am Rancho High School’s 2014-2015 Historian. I honestly haven’t been in this club for very long. I’ve noticed that there is a separation between the members. Instead of really acting as one family, there are disparate groups within the entire club, It seems to me that there are those people that still feel like they don’t fit in, or they do not belong. That is the reason why I wanted to become Historian; to bring the whole club together as one club, community, and family. Doesn’t the ideal high school student always search for that one group of people that they can be their 100% self and be who they really are? That is what I want our members to feel towards our club and I plan to achieve that through suggestions of social gatherings that will add to each member’s innerscrapbook of memories. Through these ideas and the many more that will come upon, I strive to create a bond within our family that will not be broken, sort of like a hydrogen bond . I hope that these bonds will be brought outside of the club and into each of our member’s personal lives so that we can be a living testimony of how Key Club has brought us all together. “
