This past weekend we held a leadership summit in conjunction with the Texas-Oklahoma District of Circle K International convention. We had many opportunities to work with these inspiring college students.
Some highlights were our luncheon panel discussion on justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in the Kiwanis family and a service project to assemble birthday cake baking kits for local food pantries. The luncheon was also a great opportunity to match students with Kiwanians based on majors and professions to create networking opportunities.
We had a number of sessions with our board of trustees and lieutenant governors to discuss what’s working well in Kiwanis Clubs in our district, learn how we can be better servant leaders, and hear firsthand from our student leaders how they have been impacted by our service leadership programs.
Our partners from the Texas-Oklahoma Kiwanis Foundation also awarded over $14,000 in scholarships to the CKI members after a whole morning of interviews on Saturday!
On Sunday we held our board of trustees meeting to discuss the remaining year ahead and beyond.
