Michigan District of Circle K International
Message from the District Governor:
Oakland University Circle K
Michigan District of Kiwanis!
My name is Nathan Wright and it is my honor to be serving as the 2016-2017 Michigan District of Circle K Governor. I am currently a junior at Oakland University studying Elementary Education. I have been a member of the Kiwanis Family for six years when I started in Key club I found my passion of service and leadership. Kiwanis and the Service Leadership Programs have offered me countless service opportunities and the opportunity to build my leadership skills and gain so many new friends. Circle K is the best organization because its members are continually growing. This year is going to be full of growth, excitement, and change.
Our goals are lofty and we will need every branch of Kiwanis on board to achieve them. We are shooting to get 550 members as a district and to complete 22,500 service hours. We are going to get 250 Kiwanis Family Relation Events with Kiwanis and the other SLP’s. We are going to need all hands on deck this year to reach our goals, are you ready?
Message from the District Administrator:
Kiwanis Club of Clinton Township
Thanks to the support of Kiwanis clubs throughout the district, the Michigan District of Circle K is continuing to grow in members, clubs, and service.
Circle K International (CKI) members are college students dedicated to the three tenets of service, leadership, and fellowship through membership in the Kiwanis family. CKI clubs are student-led organizations sponsored by a Kiwanis club. Our members value their Kiwanis family, attending meetings and events with their sponsoring Kiwanis, as well as working with local Key Clubs, Builders Clubs, K-Kids, and Aktion Clubs.
CKI members in Michigan perform thousands of hours of service annually, whether that’s by mentoring young children, playing Bingo with nursing home residents, cleaning up a park, or even volunteering at a rabbit sanctuary. Despite the pressures of college coursework, internships, and social obligations, Circle K’ers live their motto every day: “Live to Serve, Love to Serve.”
Currently, active Circle K clubs are chartered at 13 colleges and universities within the Michigan District, with new clubs in the process of opening at several additional schools. To learn more about Circle K in Michigan, please visit our website at www.micirclek.org.
