In 3-5 sentences, tell us about yourself.

My name is Anna Traynham, and I have been a part of the Kiwanis family since I joined Key Club during my freshman year of high school. Some of my hobbies include art, longboarding and marching band. I love volunteering and being a part of CKI, and I am so excited to be governor of the Kansas District this upcoming year!

 

What are you most looking forward to about your year as governor?

I am excited to grow as a person in this leadership role and help all of the Kansas CKI chapters grow.

 

Favorite CKI Memory

One of my favorite CKI memories occurred at our city's annual Pancake Feed/Silent Auction, where we helped make and serve breakfast for people in the community who attended the auction. I ended up doing the dishes for two hours with another CKI member while listening to music and having many laughs. This CKI member came to be one of my really close friends and we actually served as the President and Vice President of our chapter this past year.

 

Favorite Service Project

My favorite service project is our annual Highway Clean-Up event with the Manhattan Solar Kiwanis Club. Every semester, we eat breakfast together and clean up trash along a mile-long stretch of the highway.
