Kristy is our incredibly helpful, joke-loving governor. She graduated this past May with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration, and she is continuing her education this year by pursuing an accelerated Master’s degree. She joined the Kiwanis Family at the end of her first year at Northwood. Since then, she has served as her club’s service chair and president. Kristy’s favorite service project is volunteering as a conductor on the Santa Train in Midland during the month of December because it’s a nice train ride through downtown Midland and kids get so excited to ride the train to the North Pole! District Convention in 2016 was Kristy’s first district event and it has remained her favorite ever since because she gets to meet a lot of new people. She is especially looking forward to it this year because Northwood is hosting!

Morgan is a senior at Western this year. She is looking forward to doing service with her club and for our first big district event: Fall Rally. She loves that Circle K is a community of people who join together simply because they want to help others. Her favorite service project is Habitat for Humanity because you never know what you’ll be doing so it’s exciting. An interesting fact about Morgan is that she has a black belt in taekwando!

This is Ben’s second year as district treasurer. He loves Circle K because it is an amazing group of people who have a rare passion to serve… something that is rare to find in a group of college students. Ben always has a fun time when helping those in need. He loves his home club, CMU, in particular because they are such a tight knit group of people.
District Bulletin Editor
School: Michigan State University
Jared is a sophomore at MSU, majoring in elementary education. He adds the extra spice that every executive board needs, while publishing timely, informative, and inclusive bulletins. He joined the Kiwanis family in High School where he served as his Key Club’s President. Last year, he was fundraising/campus relations chair at MSU as well. Circle K has a special place in Jared’s heart because of the sense of family in the organization. He loves sharing his passion for service and bonding with all ages. He is very excited for the District Events this year, especially DCON where he gets to see everyone dressed up and enjoying the moment. Jared advises new Circle K members to go out of their comfort zones by going to district events, club socials, or even running for a club/district position!
Lori is the fabulous Administrator for our Circle K District. Her favorite service project is Kid’s Coalition Against Hunger because she coordinates it. She looks forward to working with an amazing board this year and all our district events, especially Fall Rally. An interesting fact about Lori is that she lived in Hawaii for 6 years where she met her husband. Our district is lucky to have an Administrator as dedicated as Lori.
