Circle K Club garners awards

At the recent, annual Circle K International's California-Nevada-Hawaii District convention, the Orange Coast College Circle K Club was recognized for excellence with nearly four dozen awards. Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Costa Mesa, the OCC club has grown to be the largest community college Circle K Club in the world with nearly 100 members.

President Ryan Pham (Santa Ana), Vice President Tiffany Yim (Irvine), Kiwanis Family Chair Jennifer Que (Garden Grove), Membership Development and Education Chair Jacqueline Vu (Westminster), Technology Chair Kevin Amatayakul (Huntington Beach), Historians Naho Kon and Noriko Yoshida (both of Costa Mesa), Spirit Chair Thi Hoang (Fountain Valley) and Special Events Chair Jennifer Tran (Westminster) all were recognized as Distinguished Officers by the Kiwanis Committee that reviewed dozens of applications. Secretary Ysabel Montemayor (Irvine) earned the Monthly Report Form Award for her excellent work in tracking activities throughout the year.

The club was designated as Distinguished, the only community college club in the three-state district to earn this award. Thirty-three members received Member Recognition Awards for their contributions to the college and the community. This program offers awards at four levels based on service and leadership.

Faculty advisor Jeff Dimsdale, OCC's dean of students emeritus, was named the Faculty Member of the Year.

In addition to recognizing the past year's excellence, the convention signifies the end of the Circle K year and the time when new officers are elected and installed.
