On August 12, 1978 at the Texas-Oklahoma District Convention in Amarillo, Texas the Past Lt. Governors Association was formed under the leadership of Governor Don Wilson (1976-1977) and Lt. Governor Arthur Swanberg (1976-1977).

The primary purpose of the PLGA is to assist in the promotion of the Objects of Kiwanis International and therein provide leadership for the growth of Kiwanis. To aid and assist current lt. governors as needed in their divisions, to willingly serve as advisor and consultant to all Kiwanians and clubs and to assist and support the Service Leadership Programs. PLGA members are ready to serve in whatever capacity needed to seek out, assist and encourage Kiwanians in the district and the only requirement necessary to enlist PLGA aid is “TO ASK.” The symbol of the organization is the Road Runner.

The PLGA Board of Directors has established a major goal to identify divisions where a local PLGA is organized. An effort is underway to establish some form of local PLGA groups in all T-O Divisions. Once established, a communication link between the PLGA Board and local chapters will promote a district-wide effort to involve a greater number of members in the objectives of the PLGA. Watch for additional details on this web page, Ki-Notes, and by contact from the PLGA Board Members and the Division Representative Committee. Dubbed the “grass fire” project, this effort is headed by Mike Hutchins.

To encourage a strong communication between the PLGA Board and membership, all Kiwanians are invited to attend any of the regular board meetings.

PLGA Leadership Award

The purpose of the award is to recognize the adults, who give countless hours of dedicated service as mentors and leaders to our sponsored youth programs. This year I hope you will give special consideration to nominating the teachers that serve as faculty advisors. These men and women get very little pay or recognition. The intended results of this effort include strengthening the bond between local Kiwanis clubs, schools, and sponsored youth programs and contributing to the growth of the Texas-Oklahoma Foundation.
