Are you ready for a new year of service? We are thrilled to welcome the 2022-23 Circle K International Board of Trustees.
Tyler Kearns of Fultonville, New York, will serve as the 2022-23 Circle K International president. Kearns is looking forward to meeting members from all over the world and hearing what most energizes them about CKI. He believes CKI has amazing opportunities to grow and develop and hopes to connect with club leaders on an international level, increase alumni engagement and continue to strengthen CKI’s relationship with Kiwanis International. Kearns has been a part of the Kiwanis family since Builders Club. In CKI, he has served as a lieutenant governor, club committee chair and international trustee and worked on multiple committees and task forces. Kearns ran for international president after recognizing new opportunities for CKI, including its alumni engagement. He says the alumni program offers an opportunity for professional development and networking for members and can help prepare them for the professional world. A recent graduate of St. Lawrence University in New York with a degree in conservation biology, Kearns is continuing his education at Boston University. After college, he hopes to work with breeding programs for endangered species and animal rehabilitation/rescue teams.
Liz Sevigny of Portland, Maine, will serve as the new vice president for Circle K International for the 2022-23 year. Sevigny was a member of the North Yarmouth Academy Key Club as well as the Deering High School Key Club, where they served for two terms as club president. They hope to hit the ground running by building out a structure that enables committees and their chairs to work efficiently and deliver value to members. Sevigny plans to make sure districts are well-informed as they transition into the new dues structure. They enjoy being part of Circle K International and learning and growing alongside friends from all around the world. Sevigny joined CKI after benefitting from their Key Club experience and believes their people skills are well-suited for the role of vice president. Outside of Circle K International, Sevigny participates in the college’s Computer Science Society as well as several cultural organizations. Previously a teaching assistant, they work as a senior admissions ambassador and assist the Asian Studies, Ancient Studies, Latin and Greek programs on campus.
