New Jersey District Board,
My name is Mary Klein and I am extremely appreciative that I have been given the opportunity to serve as one of this service year’s Lieutenant Governor At Large.
I am currently a junior at Manville High School in Somerset County. Before being appointed as Lieutenant Governor At Large, I have served as Manville’s Key Club president for one year and a general member for two. In the three years I have been involved with Kiwanis, I have had great experiences advocating for those in my community who were in need. This past year we held three food drives and a clothing drive, as our high school’s focus was “Help the Homeless”. One major thing I have done as president was I worked with Manville’s elementary school principal to establish a tutoring and mentoring program between the elementary school and our high school. At first, the program was meant for students who did not understand English well; who would benefit from working with older, bilingual students volunteering as tutors. The program grew to be for any student, to primarily work on schoolwork but to also set aside days to explore hobbies with volunteers of similar interests. Some of which include movies, computers, sports, music, food, and science. The high school students served as role models and friends, as well as tutors. It had such a positive impact on everyone involved thus we certainly plan on continuing the program this service year.
Aside from Key Club, I hold positions in student council, National Honors Society, Future Business Leaders of America, Forensics, band, choir, Track and Field, and Cheerleading. I am most involved with my school’s drama program and community theaters in my area.
In my time as LTG-at-large I hope to achieve the following:
· Charter at least two Kiwanis clubs
· Assist in planning a divisional event
· Create great working relationships with my Key Club peers and Kiwanis advisors
I cannot wait to serve on the New Jersey District Board with all of you amazing, inspiring people! I look forward to an awesome year of service.
Yours in Caring and Service,
Mary Klein Lieutenant Governor At Large
