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 purposes of the PLGA are 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 the divisions; to willingly serve as advisor and consultant to all Kiwanians and clubs; to assist and support the Service Leadership Programs; and, to encourage a strong communication between the PLGA and district membership.
PLGA members are ready to serve in whatever capacity is 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 Roadrunner.
PLGA Tentative Board Dates: The PLGA may meet to conduct business virtually/electronically throughout the year and in person at the annual District Convention. All Kiwanians are invited to attend any of the regular PLGA board meetings.

PLGA Youth 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. Special consideration should be given to nominating those who serve as Faculty Advisors. These men and women get very little pay or recognition for their extra effort. The intended results of these awards include strengthening the bond between local Kiwanis clubs, schools and sponsored youth programs and contributing to the growth of the Texas-Oklahoma Foundation.
Youth Leadership Award Chair: Margaret Davis
