Letter From LTG-Hello, hello Division 3W! For those who don’t know, my

name is Christina Lee and I am beyond honored to

serve as your Lieutenant Governor for the 2016-2017

school year. Key Club represents a family that I can

always be myself around, and I have had some of my

finest moments in Key Club. To tell you a little more

about myself:o I am the youngest of 3: my older sister is a graduating senior

(and our former Club Secretary), and my older brother lives in

New York

o I am a CAT LOVER

o I will be a graduating senior at CRHS next year

o I am just about the pun-niest and tiniest person you will

probably meet

o But my voice is not very tiny

o I love to talk to people! That said, I usually like it when people

talk with me ;)

o I can’t wait to serve 3W and make memorable connections

and fond memories with all of you!

Please don’t ever hesitate to email me or friend me on Facebook! I

am open to everyone whether you’d like to just learn more about

myself, Key Club, or cats, but I will always be willing to help you in

your moments of need. I have never seen such a dedicated group

of caring individuals and would love to be friends with all of you. I

hope you to see you all at the next DCM!

Yours in service,

Christina Lee

Sponsor Spotlight-Mrs. Bradshaw, CRHS

This year, I wanted to give special shout-outs to the adults

who make all of the beauty in Key Club possible- our

faculty advisors! I’m starting off my first one featuring Mrs.

Bradshaw, who will be starting off her second term as

advisor this upcoming school year. She’s a Chemistry

PAP/GT teacher at Cinco Ranch High School and

undoubtedly the brightest light in the room, no matter

who’s with her.

Thank you so much for being a flexible yet determined

powerhouse, Mrs. Bradshaw! Without you, we’d have

struggled so much. We love you!

If you’d like to give a dedicate a Sponsor Spotlight to a faculty advisor, please email me a picture (or two) of them as well as a little blurb that I can

feature! My email is and you’ll get to see your dedicated faculty advisor here.

Paws & Relax- Taylor Key Club!

Thank you to Ankita

Ajith (President of

Taylor Key Club) for

inviting me to the Paws & Relax social!

They raised money by

socialize and relax

with pets for $2 each.

This was an extremely

successful social and I

was so impressed by

their great teamwork!

Great going, Taylor

Key Club!

Please don’t forget to

invite me to your club events! I’d love to

hang out- and more

importantly, serve the

community, alongside

each and everyone in

our division.
