Cardinal Key and Blue Key had an awesome opportunity this semester to work the security for SAB’s Phillip Phillips concert! It was a great way for us to support our fellow CK Abbi who was in charge of the event. Obviously, we had a lot of fun with it 🙂 Thanks SAB!!! And good work Abbi!
Before everyone went home for Thanksgiving break, our wonderful social chair Ellyn planned a Thanksgiving progressive dinner! Cardinal Keys went from house to house enjoying Thanksgiving appetizers, dessert and of course turkey. Yummy! Thanks Ellyn!
On November 8th Dads traveled from near and far to enjoy the day with their Cardinal Key daughters! We loved having our dads in town to show them what Cardinal Keys like to do most: spend time to together, serve together, eat together, and support Truman together!
Peggy, Hannah, Stacey, Claire, Lauren and their dads/grandpas spent their service portion of Dads Day raking leaves at the Kirksville Head Start school!
Kirsten and her dad cheer on the Truman Bulldogs with other CKs!
The Eugene Fair chapter of Cardinal Key had a great retreat at The Crossing on November 1st! We reflected on our year so far, made goals for the future, took oodles of pictures, ate more than our stomachs could hold, shared our hidden ninja and acting talents, laughed til our sides hurt and left with smiles on our faces. Thanks to our retreat committee for all their hard work!!!
All over Kirksville this Halloween, Truman Cardinal Keys participated in our annual “Trick or treat, save your sweets” fundraiser for JDRF. We went around to local homes asking for donations, in the hope that kids with diabetes will be able to enjoy the candy they receive on Halloween someday. In 1.5 hours we were able to raise over $600!!!!! We are so thankful to be a part of such a giving community!

Our very own Abbi Berry was crowned Truman State Homecoming QUEEN on October 19, 2013! What an honor!
We are so excited and proud of Abbi!
Members of the Truman CK chapter attended the National Conference in Chicago-October 5-8. The theme of this year’s conference was “Creating Connections” and Morgan Schmitz, Lara Redmond, Shelby Pieper and Advisor Liz Jorn attended workshops on fundraising, JDRF, recruitment, reports and social media. Attendees also volunteered at the Ron Santo Walk to Cure Diabetes which had over 7000 walkers and raised over $1.1 million. Also in attendance were Truman alumni, which included Devin Lammy (National Co-Director), Rachel Marx, Kirsten Vollmer, Baillie Cloyd and Gretchen Smiles. On the last day of the conference elections were held for new national officers and there was a closing banquet celebrating the accomplishments of all the Ck chapters. Shelby was voted in as the new National President and Morgan as Vice President. Congrats Shelby and Morgan!

Did you know that this past summer was much colder in many places than usual? Luckily our CKs had their Big Reds to keep them warm! Take a look at the many places our sisters sported their Big Reds this summer:
Our chapter’s president Hannah Farnsworth sported some CK spirit at the USA vs Panama Gold Cup Champion soccer game!
- Jancee snuggled up with her FRIENDS and Big Red on a rainy night in Kansas City!
Peggy shared some CK love with her Newfoundland cousins, Birkie and Henry, at the beach in Lake Michigan!
Morgan’s Big Red brought her some luck in Wisconsin where she caught her first fish!
Katie Hirsch’s Big Red helped keep her and her sister warm on a cold summer night in Kansas!
Katie Hamel introduced her Big Red to the beautiful beaches of Hawaii this summer!
Our national president and wonderful Alum Rachel Marx is bringing a lot of CK love to her new town and Teach For America students in Arkansas!
