The Circle K International organization at The University of North Carolina at Pembroke brought home four awards at 2018 Carolinas District’s annual District Convention February 23-25 in Greenville, S.C.
Alexis Hurd was named Outstanding Club Secretary. Kimsey Collins received the award for Outstanding Club Treasurer. UNCP was also awarded the Club Achievement Award for the Silver Division (36-60 members) and received third place for its T-shirt design.
Two other members of UNCP’s delegation – Carly Rochelle and Christine Rolfes – also attended the convention. All four UNCP students are members of the women’s soccer team. Circle K International, a premier collegiate community service organization, follows three main principles – service, leadership, and fellowship.
Breakout sessions during the convention covered topics ranging from fundraising, leadership to social media. Students also participated in a service project that consisted of making blankets for babies and families in the (NICU) neonatal intensive care unit. A ‘pie in the face’ auction raised $3,500 for the Boys and Girls Home of North Carolina.
Circle K International was chartered at UNCP on April 20, 2017. It is sponsored by Kiwanis of Robeson-Lumberton.
