Multiple Awards Received at Kiwanis Youth Convention:

UCLA’s chapter of Circle K International (CKI) attended the 62nd Annual Circle K International California-Nevada-Hawaii District Convention recently, where the club was highly recognized in outstanding achievements, placing in nine competitive categories with a total of 16 award acknowledgements and five scholarship recipients.

With 225 members, the chapter raised nearly $21,000 for various charities and volunteered almost 11,000 service hours this past year.

The UCLA Chapter was awarded Distinguished Club and Second Place in Outstanding Total Achievement in the Gold Division (chapters with more than 90 members). UCLA has been recognized in club achievement at the district and international levels in previous years as well.

In addition to the club’s overall achievements, the following committee-related awards were presented: Distinguished Member Development & Education to Jamie Sison, Dorothy Kenny, Lindon Tran, Katherine Pham, and Angela Du, and Distinguished Kiwanis Family Relations to Nicholas Stringfellow and Lindon Tran.

The chapter’s elected board was awarded with Distinguished Awards for President (Lisa Chong), Administrative Vice President (Juliana Deer), Treasurer (Jong Choi), and Secretary (Thien Nghiem). Nghiem also received an award for his punctual submissions of Club Monthly Report Forms. A Distinguished Appointed Board Member Award went to Lily Lequang for her work as the Small-Scale Service Chair. In addition, Sonya Apinyavat, Lisa Chong, Josef Madrigal, Thien Nghiem, and Nicholas Stringfellow were awarded the Kiwanis Cal-Nev-Ha Foundation Scholarship.

“This past weekend at District Convention was a memorable one for us all,” said Lisa Chong, 2015-2016 UCLA CKI President.

“We had the privilege to attend various workshops, panels, and career networking sessions and were able to form personal connections with CKI members from all over California, Nevada, and Hawaii. We received a plethora of awards, including second place in the most prestigious category of ‘Outstanding Total Achievement.’ These recognitions would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the members, and I am humbled to have had the opportunity to serve this club this past year.”
