Greetings From Trang WHAT'S UP SHARKS? Man oh man, it is time to get things rolling, and start Key Clubbing like crazy! Why? Because school has started! Woo hoo! I have to admit, it is hard to wake up so early in the morning. However, I am up and ready to work with all of you to make this year amazing. With the commencement of this new school year, it is time to set goals that will bring us to success. What do you want your club to do? How do you wish people to view Key Club? How will you impact the lives of the many? Any challenges you may face, any problems you have, any ideas you want to pursue, I am just a phone call, email, Facebook, or text message away. So, get your creative juices flowing! If you are stumped, contact me! I can give you tips, ideas, and support. I will be your rock (; On that note, we are halfway through the Key Club year. Coming next January, you should be ending your term in office. With that being said, it is time to reflect on how far you've gone in your Key Club career this year. Have you been involved in your school? Are you being an example of excellence to others? Is your Key Club truly abiding by our motto, "Caring, our way of life". Lastly, are you doing everything in your power to be involved in our division? Are you being a strong contribution to not only our KC family, but the Puget Sound community? Think about how you influence the community with your role as a leader. A position is one thing, your actions are another. Make positive choices, and be a role model for others. P.S If you haven't heard, WE WON THE SPIRIT STICK AT SEATTLE RALLY! OMG. OMG.
