Presidential Address Lions Club is the world’s largest service organization and here at UT, we focus on providing service to our local communities. Our motto is ‘We Serve’. To me, this means that where there is a need, there is a Lion. Our vision this year is to foster ongoing passion for service while building lasting relationships through meaningful community engagement. Through this year, I have learned what it takes to be a leader, a friend, a team worker, a volunteer, and a Lion. Lions Club has done so much for me and all I can say is thank you for choosing me as your 2017-2018 president. Thank you for giving me a chance to spark my flame of passion in service and in people. I hope you all find your flame to fuel your burning passion in life! Lastly, lions! Roar!
