Dear New Jersey District of Key Club International,
I am excited to announce that I, Catherine Yu, a junior at Livingston High School, will proudly serve as the Lieutenant Governor of Division 19 for the remainder of the 2016-2017 service year.
Without any prior exposure to Key Club, I walked into club fair as a mere freshman and was met by an onslaught of people urging me to join their organization. I had no idea what I wanted to do in high school – what extra-curricular activities I would join, which electives I would take, and so on. Yet, the treasurer at the time reached out to me and explained what Key Club really was: the largest student-led organization in the world, with over 260 members just in Livingston’s club, where caring is our way of life. I signed my name on an interest slip without much forethought about what I would actually do in the club. Little did I know how much Key Club would mean to me in the following two years of my life. I still do not know how much more it will become in the next two years. However, I can tell you that after volunteering my time and effort at so many different events, not only as a general member, but also as the webmaster and as the immediate past co-vice president of Livingston High School’s Key Club, helping others to improve their lives has helped me to improve my own life as well.
Other than being an active member of Key Club, I also participate in a variety of other activities, although they certainly will not detract from my duties as a member of your state board. I am currently a member of FBLA, Math Team, Science Olympiad, French National Honor Society, and Varsity Fencing. I pursue all my activities with a focus on service and determination, and I hope you all will see this portrayed in my especial devotion to Key Club.
With that in mind, here are a few goals I have so we can finish off the service year strong:
I look forward to helping even more people join in with the spirit of service that is so important to the foundation of Key Club.
Feel free to contact me through call, text, or email if you have any questions, concerns, or comments. Let’s finish the service year with a bang!
Yours in Caring and Service,
Lieutenant Governor of Division 19
