Election Results 2010-2011

Congratulations to the Key Club Board of 2010-11!
Jill Wong
Vice President Joey Nievera
Secretary Catherine Lee
Treasurer Michael Dang
Bulletin Editor Cindy Yu
Historian Tammy Truong

Thank you for all the candidates for being brave to run for a position, and to speak in front of so many people. Thank you to the members who attended the meeting and voted!
For those of you who ran and didn't get the position, please don't be discouraged. There are many other ways to be involved in Key Club, and you can continue to make a difference in the club, school, and community. A position title does not define the leader you are.

We received a number of ballots that were inappropriately marked, and do not condone this type of behavior. We chose not to count those ballots. We appreciate members who uphold the honor of Key Club.

Thank you.
