PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

 

As the 2014 President of the Kentuckiana Post, I would like to express my appreciation for being a part of such an amazing volunteer organization. I also would like to share some goals that the Board and I have set for this year.

I would like to congratulate Colonel Luke Leonard and the Board for the excellent showing on the Streamer Presentation and Awards for 2013. Once again the Kentuckiana Post has been honored with a Distinguished Post Award. The countless hours that the committees spend on workshops and conferences while still maintaining their 40 hour plus weeks on their main jobs is unbelievable and the awards and accolades that the Post receives represents their persistent spirit.

Secondly, the new and ongoing initiatives such as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), and scholarships programs, plus this year’s sponsorship of the Joint Engineering Training Symposium (JETS) on the 19th through the 21st of November in Louisville are coming on strong. Our Small Business committee and golf committee are working hard on these upcoming events and we are still maintaining our strong support of Veterans issues, such as Wounded Warrior and job fairs.

Once again, I am expecting this year to be strong on projects, programs and workshops but we cannot, as a Post, follow through without each and every one of our members. Please help us through volunteering your time to some of our projects.

I look forward to seeing you at the next Post meeting.

Ms. Lee Carolan
Post President, KP-SAME

and our troops.
