2020-2021 Kiwanis Committee on Key Club
District Assistant Administrator on Events
Hello Texas-Oklahoma! I am Kelly Poland and I’ve recently been named the Acting Administrator for our District. I’ve been involved with Key Club on various levels since 1998 when my children were in high school. I love hanging with my family and friends and working with Key Clubbers. I truly believe the tenet of Kiwanis that I can change the world one child and one community at a time.
2020-2021 Regional Advisors
Hey! I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland where I began my K-Family involvement as a member of the Patterson High School Key Club, which was sponsored by the Highlandtown Kiwanis Club in East Baltimore. With service in my heart, I was quickly elected to serve as the Patterson High School Key Club President, then elected to the post of Lt. Governor for Division 6-12 which covered Baltimore City and Baltimore County. After servicing as Lt. Governor I was encouraged by my fellow Key Clubbers to run for Governor of the Capital District, so I did. After an exciting election, I was elected Governor of Capital District Key Club. In my professional career, I have been an HR Generalist, Staffing Manager, Training Manager, and currently am a Homeowners Association Manager. I am excited to come back to the Kiwanis Family and I’m looking forward to broadening my Kiwanis career by serving as a Kiwanis Advisor for the Cedars International Next Generation High School Key Club and becoming a Regional Advisor for Region 11 of the Texas-Oklahoma Key Club District.
Hi everyone, my name is Judy Pomorski and I am very encouraged by this year’s District Board. We have some very smart and innovative members, and it’s a pleasure to see their ideas take shape and their generosity move into local communities. I think that all of us have good intentions, but Key Club gives us the opportunity to put those ideas in motion. Thanks for being wonderful inspiration.
Hi! I’m Shane Miller and I’m one of the Regional Advisers for Region 10. I’m a Houston-based Land Ownership Representative at Chevron. In 2002-2003, I was lucky enough to be an International Trustee on the Key Club International Board and to be assigned Texas-Oklahoma District. Little did I know I’d be a redcoat years later! I enjoy the arts (I’m a member of the Board of Trustees of both the Houston Symphony and Houston Ballet) and almost anything outdoors. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with the amazing group of LTGs and Staff that make up the District Board as they continue to make Texas-Oklahoma Key Club amazing.

I have served my home club as a member of the Board of Directors and as current club secretary. I was also named Division Club Counselor in 2014-17. As Kiwanis Lieutenant Governor, I was recognized by the Kiwanis International Foundation for helping my Division meet the 2013-14, and 2014-15 President’s Challenge.
