Donna Marie McElroy, associate professor of social science, began spring break by taking six members of Atlantic Cape’s Circle K Club (Carlos Camacho, Natalie Sporl, Minh Le Getty, Anthony Patrizi, Molly Thompson and Brandie Steelman) to the New Jersey District Convention of Circle K International (CKI). They traveled to Edison, where they met Circle K members from Rutgers, Stockton, Rowan, Brookdale, TCNJ and the Kiwanis who sponsor and advise these clubs. They learned about leadership, experienced fellowship and did a service project (the three tenets of Circle K) throughout the weekend.
At the Opening Session on Monday night, Atlantic Cape was awarded the prize (a plush Jersey tomato, held in the photo by Getty) for best school chant (“A C cubed”), and we were recognized as the newest Circle K Club to the New Jersey District. On Sunday at the Closing Session, the new board members for the 2016-17 year were installed. Among them was student Molly Thompson, who was elected District Editor on Saturday evening.
The Circle K Club meets at the Cape May County Campus on Tuesdays from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. in Room 215. For more information, please contact Club Advisor Donna Marie McElroy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
