Luke Broussard, District Governor (Governor@tokeyclub.com)

Hey T-O Key Clubbers!

I am honored to serve you as District Governor for this upcoming year of service. The Mighty Texas-Oklahoma District is going to accomplish so much this year!
I am currently seventeen and a Junior at Early High School in Early, Texas. I play tennis in my free time to stay in shape and release stress. I also play saxophone in my school band. I work at Chicken Express. It’s not the best job, but hey, who doesn’t like free chicken? My favorite board game is Pictionary Man, and I love Taco Bell, mostly because that is all we have in small town Early, Texas.

My goals for this Key Club year include; focusing on service by promoting service and informing clubs of new service opportunities, improving the Texas-Oklahoma District by motivating the Lieutenant Governors and connecting with the clubs through social media, and finally but certainly not least, building the K-Family by working one on one with the Circle K and Kiwanis Governors.

The T-O Board is going to devote themselves to making this the best year possible, and I am very excited to see all of the great things we accomplish TOgether.

Usman Hyder, District Secretary (Secretary@tokeyclub.com)

What is up T-O!

Usman here, and I am so honored to serve as your District Secretary for the 2013-2014 year. I am so excited for this year and so stoked to work with each and every one of the amazing people in this district. Some things about myself: I play tennis, I love the word “ratchet”, sleep isn’t on my schedule, schoolwork is oh so fun for me, and I attempt to stay away from all food items that contain sugar. If you are reading this, we have now become “dawgs”.

My dedication to this great organization is at an all-time high, and day-by-day, I love Key Club even more. I hope that we can all share this passion and have a great and successful year!

My main goal in the next year is to establish a bond between the great secretaries in the Texas-Oklahoma District and I. Through different communication methods, I would like to offer a helping hand in which I will personally help with monthly reporting and any other thing that anyone needs. Through this, I would like to increase reporting and increase the amount of service we do as a District. I also am currently making the monthly reporting video tutorial and editing the Jolly Book of Wisdom, so please utilize those resources when they do get published. Do not hesitate to contact me through the different ways of communication that we have to offer (email, Facebook, Phone, etc.). I really really want to help, so please talk to me!

Thank you for allowing me to serve you; I won’t let you down.

Isaiah ValleQuinones, District Treasurer (Treasurer@tokeyclub.com)

HEY, T-O!

I first off want to say thanks to all of you who elected me to serve as District Treasurer for this upcoming year. I am super excited for what this year has in store for all of us and I cannot wait to see what the Mighty T-O will accomplish!

As far as me personally, I am currently seventeen and a soon-to-be-Senior at MacArthur High School in Lawton, Oklahoma. I am on my high school’s swim team and I am a soon-to-be member of the Leadership Class of 2014 at my high school. I work at a Mexican Restaurant in town, called Salas, so if you are ever in the Shady 5-80 and need your taco fix, make sure to holla at ya boy. My favorite movie of all time is Mean Girls, and I swear to you, I could quote almost every line from that movie. I am a huge Rihanna fan and I love Maroon 5. In my spare time, I enjoy eating and sleeping (just like any other kid my age). Although this is only a short synopsis of me, I hope you all have a better understanding of who I am.

As far as this Key Club year is concerned, I really want T-O to strengthen more than it has ever been. Although stated in my speeches at DCON, I want to reiterate my goals for this year. (a) I know the Membership Update Center caused multiple problems this year, but I can assure T-O that those issues will be reduced this year as I work my hardest to get resources to accommodate these issues. (b) Through social media sites, such as FaceBook, I will do my best to keep in constant contact with club treasurers. I hope to bring in new sources of communication, as well, such as a group text message for all club treasurers and other members wanting to join. (c) By working with the Membership Growth Committee and General Public Relations Committee, I will do my best to market Key Club and increase our membership. Having more members join and be positively benefited by this organization is something I would love to see, and I hope the T-O District feels the same way.

As said before, I am super excited about this year and looking forward to great wonders.

Tashrima Hossain, District Editor (Editor@tokeyclub.com)

Hey Mighty T-O Key Clubbers!

My name is Tashrima Hossain, and I’m your 2013-2014 District Editor. To let you all know a little bit about me, I’m a Harry Potter-obsessed, food-loving, music-a-holic, In addition, I am passionate about Key Club and am eager about the service we have ahead of us.

As many of you are already aware, I have four major goals for the upcoming year:

  1. Increasing cohesion: Communication really is “key” to working “TOgether.” I hope to work with you to discover which contact means works best—the Editor’s blog, text updates, e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram—to ensure that everyone is always informed. Also, I’ll emphasize the importance of involvement with Circle K and Kiwanis for overall unity within the K-Family.
  2. Upholding graphic standards: I plan to educate all editors, LTGs, and anyone else who’s interested about the nuances of graphic standards. Moreover, adherence to graphic standards will now be a requirement and will be the first thing I look for when reading a club/division publication.
  3. Emphasizing the impact of service: I will encourage the use of volunteer testimonies to teach all T-O Key Clubbers about the global influence they have when they serve.
  4. Increasing Tex-O-Key Readership: I intend to use a magazine format to increase interest in the Tex-O-Key and to advertise to increase accessibility within the district. Moreover, be sure to look out for monthly report point opportunities in the upcoming Tex-O-Keys!

Furthermore, this year, I’ll use two innovations to make sure we stick to our goals:

  1. Monthly Spotlight Club: Each month, I’ll recognize one group’s outstanding service, commitment to graphic standards, or incredible club cooperation. This will reward certain clubs while also motivating others.
  2. Letters to the Editor: If you ever have any questions/concerns/suggestions that you’d like to be publicized, e-mail me with the subject line, “Letter to the Editor.” I’ll publish your letter as well as my answer in the Tex-O-Key to, once again, highlight communication.

I’m always open to any suggestions you may have about how I can improve as your District Editor. Please don’t hesitate to send me an e-mail me at Editor@tokeyclub.com or call/text me at 713-505-2252 with any questions, concerns, special Nutella recipes, etc. If I don’t pick up immediately, I’m probably off contemplating who A is, cracking up at Pinterest pins, or failing miserably at Zumba. Just know that I’ll get back to you soon and am looking forward to a great year of service.

Grace Liu, Convention Liaison (CL@tokeyclub.com)

Hi Texas-Oklahoma!

My name is Grace Liu, and I cannot begin to say how honored I am to serve all of you as your 2012-2014 Convention Liaison. I can’t wait for what we will all accomplish in this next year of service!

Now some interesting facts about me: I HATE cheese. I absolutely cannot stand the smell, taste, or even the look of the yellow substance. I recently started listening to Imagine Dragons and Florence + the Machine and It’s official…I am hooked. So if any of y’all ever want to talk about how amazing they are, hit me up! My sole nickname has always been Graciepoo. It’s so weird because I’ve been called this since I lived in California all the way ’till now. I guess it’s an instinct!

Serving has always been and still is my passion. I intend to make our next District Convention something that you will never forget. My biggest goal for next year is to reinforce a passion into every key clubber at DCON, so that they will pass it on to others in their clubs and have the spirit to make a difference in their community. My other goals for District Convention 2014 are to 1) increase social interaction between clubs by adding activities that will “break the ice”, 2) help employ and design a district mascot that will ignite club cheer, 3) develop an eye-catching stage, 4) help increase attendance and excitement using graphics and advertisements that I will personally make from scratch, 5) make each forum interesting and beneficial by having personal interviews through phone/video chat, 6) advertise DCON publicly through social media and word-of-mouth, 7) and for each person to thoroughly enjoy their time at DCON!

If you ever have any questions or feedback for me, please feel free to email me at CL@tokeyclub.com or call/text me at 817-962-8945. I promise you, District Convention will be an event to remember. Once again, I am very eager to serve as your Convention Liaison. Let’s work T-Ogether to make next year abundant with service!
