Arroyo High School student Vince Nguyen has been elected Key Club Lieutenant Governor of Division 35 West for 2014-15. Key Club International is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. Affiliated with Kiwanis International, it is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through service to others.
“Ever since I attended my first meeting, my love for Key Club has grown from there. This organization has given me something no other club can give, an Ohana – family,” said Nguyen. “My life has been immensely impacted by Key Club and all the wonderful people who are in it.”
Nguyen’s goals are centered around making the division better by strengthening the bonds between all clubs in the division, enhancing every member’s Key Club experience through new and innovative ideas to keep current members’ interest as well as attract new members, strengthening leadership qualities in each member and keeping members and officers dedicated and motivated throughout his term.
“I will also strive towards building stronger clubs and creating a year full of service and memories that will never be forgotten,” said Nguyen. “I will stay dedicated to Key Club and work hard to help each member grow a passion for service.”
Some of Nguyen’s duties will include serving as a liaison between the district and the division, serving as a district board member and on one of the committees, holding at least ten divisional council meetings a year, promoting Key Club and helping each club improve.
Key Club International has more than 5,000 clubs in 32 countries with a total membership of approximately 260,000 students.
“I will dedicate my time to all the members who serve this division by striving towards achieving the goals I’ve set and the goals that each club wants to achieve,” added Nguyen.
