The End and the Beginning

April 1, 2018 Authored by: Kyler Tagupa
Hello everyone! And goodbye! Not like a "I'm leaving" goodbye, but more like "Thank you" goodbye. Today marks the end of the 2017-2018 term and the beginning of the 2018-2019 term, so I will no longer serve you as your president. On behalf of all of the Board Members and Family Heads, thank you! We came into this term with big goals, ambitions, and ideas. It is through all of our hard work as a club that we were able to see many of these ideas come to life and accomplish everything that we did. As members, you all SPARKed a bright passion within us and each other that pushes us to do bigger, brighter things. It is together that we work to create, innovate, and reinvent everything here in Circle K.
As a president, I am extremely proud of everything that you have done. You have pushed me to be a better leader, and have given me new hope for the future of the club. The road throughout the term has not been easy, but it has been worthwhile every step of the way. Sure, I'm happy of all of the things we accomplished. All the hours we served and all the money we raised has been record breaking. And all of these things have been a big part of my presidency. But the best part about leading this club has been getting to meet all of you. I wish I could have gotten to know all of you more than I did, but I still am able to see you all serve your communities, become better leaders, and make new friends among your families and the rest of the club. So in short, thank you. For everything. I didn't think that I would be so appreciative and thankful for CKI when I first joined. I didn't think I would ever serve as your president way back when. And I certainly never thought that I would be as happy as I am being part of Circle K. But that's why I love this club and this organization. You all have affected my life in ways I don't think any other organization can do. But thank you for everything that you all given me. Thank you for having faith in me, the Board Members, and the Family Heads. And thank you for making my last (?) year in Circle K one to remember. Please know that although I am retiring, I will always be here for you. It's been an honor serving you. With Love, Service, and Leadership,
Kyler Tagupa
Immediate Past President of UC Irvine Circle K

Hello, from District Convetion 2018!

March 25, 2018 Authored by: Kyler Tagupa
Oops I fell asleep.

Any who, all 82 of us (thats like 1/9 of the entire convention!)are back fro an AMAZING weekend at District Convention! Months of hard work from both our club and the District Convention committee have let up to this weekend in a culmination of service, leadership, and fellowship. Our members represented our club well, making new friends from all over CNH and showing everyone just what UCICKI is all about!

A special congratulations to our very own Winnie Lam, who served as the Decorations and Souvenirs Chair for the DCON Committee! She worked hard this past weekend not only ensuring that DCON looked good, but ran smoothly! We are proud of you!

Secondly, thanks to all of the attendees for their work at DCON! Whether it was participating in the Talent Act, going to workshops, SAAing, or just hanging out with the other UCI attendees, I really appreciate everything that you did over the weekend!

Finally, we have some awards announcements for the weekend! Copy and paste from years past, awards are not the namesake of a successful club. No one person can look at our club from the outside in and objectively make a statement about how amazing our club is. (I mean, if growing to 420 members, 11600 service hours, and countless memories was easy, why doesn't every club do it?) But regardless, join me in congratulating the following individuals for their achievements:

- 1st Place Outstanding Newsletter: Yvon Tran and My Lynn Huynh
- 2nd Place Outstanding Non-Traditional Scrapbook: Theresa Doan
- 2nd Place Outstanding Website: Andrew Yu
- 100% MRF Submission
- Growth Enhancement Membership Award
- Distinguished Club Improvement
- 3rd Place Overall Service Totals: Winnie Lam
- 1st Place Overall Service Totals: Kyler Tagupa
- Distinguished Appointed Board: Carolyne Villaescusa
- Distinguished Appointed Board: Kimberly Cao
- Distinguished Appointed Board: Yvon Tran
- Distinguished Treasurer: Darin Ngo
- Distinguished Secretary: Marvin Bolainez
- Distinguished Vice President of Service: Reginald Sellote
- Distinguished President: Kyler Tagupa
- 2nd Place for funds raised for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
- 1st Place Talent Act
- Divisional Excellence Award
- Divisional Spirit Award

Again, congratulations to everyone who was recognized for their work during the term! DCON is a time for us as a club to reflect over the past term, and set our eyes towards the future. While many of us are retiring from Board, Family Head, or other responsibilities within Circle K, we look towards our next journey. And as a new term dawns on this club, you all as leaders are bearing a torch to help the future of UCI Circle K burn brighter than ever.

With Love, Service, and Leadership,
Kyler Tagupa
2017-2018 UC Irvine Circle K President
