2016 District Convention

Lindsey Banks

On the weekend of March 11-13, Key Clubs from across North Carolina and South Carolina gathered together for our annual District Convention, also known as DCON.  Over 600 members got the chance to attend training sessions and learn more about Key Club, and being a leader not only in their club, but in the community. Members attended general sessions and training modules, learning and soaking up new information to take back to their home clubs. With all this aside, It’s not DCON without the entertainment session, talent show, and dance. Attendees watched on as acrobats performed draw-dropping stunts and hilarious comedians made the room erupt with laughter. Members also competed in a talent show and attended a (Key) club dance. 

Another important, exciting event that happened over this weekend was the election of the new District Board. Thirty-six Lt. Governors were inducted, as well as the new Executive Officers, who were elected at the House of Delegates. The new Executive Officers are Governor Morgan Yelverton, Secretary Daniel Liu, Treasurer Katie McNiffe, and Editor Lindsey Banks.

Meet your new Executive Officers:

District Governor Morgan Yelverton

Morgan is currently a junior at the Wayne School of Engineering in Goldsboro, NC and has been in Key Club since her freshman year of high school. Outside of Key Club, she enjoys being apart of her church’s youth group and volunteering with the Special Olympics. Throughout her term as Governor, she hopes to enact the three C’s: communication, connections, and compassion. She believes if we are able to effectively communicate together, then our connections for service will arise and our level of compassion will shine.

District Secretary Daniel Liu

Daniel is currently a junior at Enloe Magnet High School in Raleigh, NC and has been in Key Club since his freshman year of high school. He is involved in a STEM tutoring initiative, participates and competes in Speech and Debate, and is a member of the National Honors Society. During his free time, he loves watching all of Shonda Rhimes' shows and House of Cards, running, and playing tennis. This coming year, he hopes to be able to educate all 12,000 members of our district and make sure that all executive board members are accessible to any club that may need assistance.

District Treasurer Katie McNiffe

Katie is currently a sophomore at Jay M. Robinson High School and has been in Key Club since her freshman year of high school. Besides Key Club, she is involved with Younglife and runs on her school's cross country team. She also works at the YMCA as a daycare counselor. During her free time, she loves to watch reruns of Grey's Anatomy and cook. As District Treasurer, she hopes to be able to make the dues process as easy as possible and hopes to provide any type of assistance to our District Board, as well as Key Club members throughout North and South Carolina.

District Editor Lindsey Banks

Lindsey is currently a sophomore at Charles D. Owen High in Black Mountain, NC and has been in Key Club since her freshman year of high school. Besides Key Club, she is involved in Student Government, Journalism, Cross Country, and Track. She loves being outside either hiking, backpacking, or running. During her free time, she loves to read, write, watch ABC sitcoms, run, and draw. As District Editor, she plans to work hard to insure every member is well informed and kept up-to-date with what’s going on in Key Club not only in our district, but internationally.
