COARSEGOLD — Hometown girl, Yosemite High grad and now, UCLA student, Angela (Angie) Du was honored with the Distinguished Membership Development and Education Award alongside her fellow officers Dorothy Kenny, Katherine Pham, Jamie Sison, and Lindon Tran at the California-Nevada-Hawaii Circle K International (CKI) District Convention in Los Angeles.
Angie was the 2015-2016 Campus Outreach Chair of the CKI chapter at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where she is studying to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Psychobiology with a minor in Global Studies.
“As the Campus Outreach Chair, Angie is one of the first faces that new members encounter,” said Lisa Chong, 2015-2016 President. “Throughout her term, she has coordinated successful tabling events to publicize CKI on campus, as well as created informational presentations and tri-folds for display. Angie has reformatted the club digest to provide event updates and educate readers about unfamiliar aspects of CKI; this digest is sent out weekly to over 400 individuals across various CKI chapters. With her warm personality and supportive attitude, Angie has left a lasting impression on nearly all members of the club.”
At the district convention, UCLA CKI placed in nine competitive award categories with a total of 16 award acknowledgements, including Distinguished Club and Second Place in Outstanding Total Achievement in the Gold Division (chapters with more than 90 members).
A 2014 graduate of Yosemite High School, Du began her experience with the Kiwanis Family in the high school branch, Key Club, before attending UCLA. This is her first time to be recognized with a California-Nevada-Hawaii CKI district award.
