Cypress, Texas (July 31, 2013)—Cypress Falls High School senior Roshni Chandwaniwas elected as one of 11 Key Club International Trustees at the Key Club International Convention (ICON) held July 3-7 in Washington, D.C.
In order to win, Chandwani had to receive an endorsement from her home Key Club district at the District Convention (DCON) in Dallas in April. After her endorsement at DCON, she submitted her intent to run at the international level of Key Club before officially campaigning at ICON this month. Finally, she made it past the regional caucuses before being elected on Saturday, July 6.
As an International Trustee, Chandwani will become a figurehead of Key Club International and represent the Kentucky-Tennessee, Pacific Northwest and Eastern Canada Districts on the international level.
“When I walked into Mrs. [Kathie] Kiklas’ room at Cy-Falls three years ago for my first Key Club meeting, I never imagined I would get this far in such a wonderful organization. Being elected as an International Trustee is honestly a dream come true for me,” said Chandwani. “I have to pinch myself every day because it doesn’t seem real.”
