Discovering My Why
My name is Samantha Calascione, I am from North Carolina District West. Over the past three years I have had the honor of serving my community through Jr. Civitan. This year I am proud to say that I will be a part of the 46th Annual Dace-A-Thon. Throughout my life it has been my goal to make a difference through service. Being in Jr. Civitan has given me that opportunity every day. I grew up wanting to take every leadership role that I was presented with, but in the last few years I have found that it is just as important to follow. Jr. Civitan showed me that leading does not have to mean that you do everything, but that you have the capability to follow and work alongside your fellow man. Each and every word of our creed speaks volumes about the organization. "I am a Junior Civitan." "An aware citizen of today", this is a constant reminder of the changes in our everyday lives. "The standing promise of tomorrow", tells us that we are all here to make a difference. "I seek to meet the needs of our world", informs us of our duty to the world in which we live. "To be progressive in a world of change", our world is changing, we are changing, and everything can change for the better. "With compassion and understanding for the values and traditions of the past", we understand the past, present and future. We will better the world through the legacy left by those before us. "I value the security of knowing that wherever I am I will always be within reach of a fellow Civitan", we are always there for each other, and we understand that everyone needs/will need help at some point in time. "I dedicate myself to society and to my fellow man", says that we give of ourselves to others, no matter what it takes. "With a commitment to MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE", it is our job to make the difference, do the work, and be the best we can be. I try to live up to this creed on a daily basis. We live this creed through our work in this organization every day.
Thank you for your support!
