Shayna Cole, a 2010-2013 LTG, has a few words to say about her position as a LTG:
“My biggest accomplishment as LTG was boosting up my division participation. Before I became LTG, not a lot of Key Clubbers in my division knew that my position even existed, so attendance was quite low at division or district events, but throughout my years as LTG I was persistent and eventually made some real progress and have several active clubs now.”
“I believe that my position as LTG allowed me to really mature and get a sense of how the real world will be. As an LTG, you are expected to inform, communicate, plan, and ultimately get things done. Things are expected that, in most cases, aren't expected in your high school. So I really feel that this position is just a great learning experience and really teaches responsibility and reliability.”
