The Dawson County Kiwanis Club's new leaders have officially been sworn into office and will be settling into their new roles in the coming weeks.

During the Sept. 24 meeting, Kiwanis Lt. Gov. Joel Williams, along with Kiwanis' Past President Kristie Myers, administered the oath and swore in the new leaders.

The club, in its own words, is a "global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time."

Members of every age attend regular meetings, experience fellowship, raise funds for various causes and participate in service projects that help their communities.

"This is a great group. I happily turn over the gavel," Myers said. "Your commitment to this club has made this year special to me, to have a small group of people who are dedicated to Kiwanis and are dedicated to the children of our community."

Myers, immediate past president, acts as an advisor to the year's current president.

This year, that role was bestowed upon Dawson County Sheriff Billy Carlisle.

"It's all about helping the kids in the county," Carlisle said. "It's an honor they would even consider selecting me. I just hope I can fill Kristie's shoes. She did an excellent job."

Williams expressed admiration for Carlisle's dual roles.

"I can't imagine being sheriff and president of this club, as well," he said. "This is the highest office we have and it's a great honor with great responsibility. The success of this club depends on you."

Other officials sworn in this year include Secretary Meredith Starr and Treasurer Regina Varnado. The 2014-15 president has also been chosen as Angela Holloway.

Directors sworn in this year are Joey Homans, Dan Pichon, Becky Holbrook and Cheryl Waldrip.

The Kiwanis Club meets at 11:30 a.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at Ryan's at the intersection of Ga. 400 and Hwy. 53.
