Governor - Kacie Iverson
Hi Minn-Dak! I am Kacie Iverson, your new MinnDak Governor. I am a rising senior at Fargo South High School. Aside from Key Club I am on my school's academic bowling team, participate in Latin club and am a swim captain. I also enjoy traveling and spending time at the lake. I am super excited to be working with each and every one of you this year and encourage you to personally reach out to me.
My goals for the year are to increase communication between international, the district and individual clubs, not only maintain, but increase membership and finally, increase attendance at district events. A little effort from each of us goes a long way.
For my governor's project, I have decided to support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. I chose this organization because I believe the rate of suicide and mental health issues for teens are too high. Many of us have personal ties to those struggling with mental health so I hope that'll motivate us to do more and donate this year. Key Club can make a change forthese individuals.
Again, I am very excited to work with you all this year. Please let me know if you have any questions, my email is email@example.com.
Secretary - Lily Dickson
Hello all! My name is Lily Dickson and I am your 2017-2018 District Secretary. Over this next year, I hope you feel comfortable to ask me all questions and I look forward to working with each and every one of you! With over 200 hours of service under my belt, Key Club is a big part of my life. Volunteering is also something that I've always been passionate about and I hope we can all find our inner servant leader. Other than Key Club, I am a Link Crew leader, Swimmer, Future Problem solver, an avid band student, and an enthusiastic scholar.
During my year as your District Secretary, I am hoping to help clubs communicate with the district board and each other. My directory should be posted to the website in the Winter, for clubs to use to contact other officers and advisors to encourage interclub meetings. I also am working to see if the monthly reports can be amended for easier transfer of information from those reports to the annual achievement report. Together, let's make this Key Club year great!
If you have any questions or concern, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I will always try to contact you back!
Bulletin Editor - Gao-je Vang
Hello everyone! My name is Gao-je and I am your newly elected Bulletin Editor of the MinnDak District. Currently I am a sophomore attending Fridley High School. I am a practical asian girl who enjoys drinking boba, listen to Kpop and watch Korean dramas. However, I'd like to think there's more to me than just those three things.
I play the flute in band, so I'm a bit of a band geek. I play soccer and also am in speech. I love all the activities I'm in, but Key Club is my favorite. I always have a blast volunteering and meeting new people.
I am very excited to serve as your new Bulletin Editor and hope to accomplish my goals I have set for myself. My main goal is to have a better connection in the MinnDak District by using social media. I also want to have a bigger attendance at our district events such as DCON. It's always more fun with a lot of people. Besides just those things, I want Key Clubbers to respond back and tell me what they want. I think everyone's voices are valuable and should be heard. I am looking forward to this upcoming year and hope to work with you all. Feel free to contact me anytime! My email is email@example.com.
Treasurer - Isabella Dunbar
Hi Key Clubbers! I'm a sophomore, soon to be a junior, at Mayo High School in Division 7c. I'm excited to be serving as the District Treasurer for the 2017- 2018 MinnDak board. I joined Key Club in my freshman year and am honored to be able to serve in a greater capacity. I believe service learning is the best resource that high schoolers have to prepare for their future while improving their community.
Some fun facts about me are that I love dogs (and have two), always laugh at bad puns, and like rainy days more than sunny days. Along with Key Club, my other activities include soccer, speech, debate, track, and World Affairs Club.
This year I plan to firmly establish the roles and responsibilities of the newly reintroduced Treasurer position to make sure the addition happens smoothly. My other goals include keeping financials organized so we can make the most out of the service year as well as providing support in whatever ways necessary to club treasurers. Along those lines, if anyone (treasurer or not) would like to contact me with questions or suggestions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm looking forward to a great year service Minndak Key Club!

I have participated in my school's Key Club since freshman year, and had the pleasure in being secretary my sophomore year.

Besides Key Club, I am involved in my school's Student Council, the Rochester Research Post, National Honors Society, and chair my school's Relay for Life committee. Out of extracurricular activities, I like to hang out with my friends, watch the same shows on Netflix over and over again, and read.

I would also like to see a larger number of participants at district events, where we can encourage more people to be passionate about service!

Division 7a - Daniel Ajagbusi
Hello, I’m Daniel, a junior at Fridley High School, and I am your new lieutenant governor for division 7a! For those of you who don't know what exactly a “lieutenant governor” I’m basically a link between all the clubs in division 7a. Which means that I will be trying to get all of our clubs to become more involved with one another. Because Key Club isn't just another school club, it's an international organization that goes far beyond your high school. And it's crucial that we stay connected, because not only does it offer more opportunities for everyone but also it more friendships and more fun, and arguably the most important, more of an impact! And isn't that the goal of Key Club? To change the world through simple acts of kindness. It becomes a whole lot easier with more people. In conclusion, I'm looking forward to working with each and every one of you this year. I'm hoping to get a lot more club involvement across the board! firstname.lastname@example.org
Division 7b - Ranjani Hariharan
Hey Minndak! My name is Ranjani Hariharan, but I also go by Jeni. I am absolutely thrilled to be Division 7b's Lieutenant Governor for the 2017- 2018 year! I am currently a sophomore at Wodbury High School. I first became an active member of Key Club in my freshman year and was a grade representative as well. I am honored and grateful to be part of such an influential, world-changing, passion intensive, and commitment intensive organization that is Key Club.
Apart from Key Club, music is a big part of me. I am an Indian classical music singer and have been a student of art ever since I was six years old. I am also a violinist and love being part of my school's orchestra program. Other than music, I am an avid tennis player and a very academically oriented student. However, service has been a part of my life for a long time. I have volunteered from my local library to homeless shelters. I have had the extreme honor and privilege to be awarded with a Presidential Volunteer Service Award based on my service hours during freshman year. I see endless beautiful possibilities when it comes to service, especially because it teaches us how to have modest pride in something very selfless.
This year, I hope that I can promote unity between the clubs of my division and establish a more directed connection between the school clubs and district board. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns at email@example.com.

I'm also a varsity swimmer, junior varsity golfer, future debate captain, student school board representative, science fair geek, and Mayo Young Volunteer team leader.
My goals are to increase inter-club communication and charter new K-Kids because both will make Division 7c stronger and more fun than ever before! I hope I can make this year fun and meaningful with all of the amazing Key Clubbers!
