Oklahoma City University Circle K Club Takes Service to Heart
OKLAHOMA CITY Oklahoma City University has added a new club to the list of activities students can join to serve others. OCU CKI is a Kiwanis College service, leadership and fellowship organization founded by Becki Anders, a business sophomore. Anders began working on an OCU chapter last summer before she started as a freshman in the fall of 2007. Long before Circle K received its charter Anders was busy finding an advisor and recruiting new members. I like to serve. By taking the leadership role, I brought service and fellowship to OCU, Anders said. Circle K made huge strides for being a first year program. They established themselves among the OCU family and attended the district convention. Anders was selected to receive the Kiwanis Merit Scholarship. Anders and OCU Circle K member Kelsey Walker, a sophomore, will attend the International Convention in Denver this August. I have learned about time management and about organization. These are two key factors you have to have when you are leading a group. An organization is only as good as its leader, Anders said. I knew going into to this I needed strong, dependable and enthusiastic people like me. What I got was better than I could have hoped for. This summer, Circle K will meet to discuss the next school year and make plans for the future. Their biggest project of the year will be hosting a carnival on campus for the Make a Wish Foundation. ###
