The Kentucky State Society was very well represented at the 2014 National Convention with 10 delegates and 7 seniors in attendance. This was one of the higher voter delegations of all states. State President Jonas Bastien gave an excellent report with National Chairmen Mallory Clouse and Mitchell Clouse also being at the heart of the convention's success. Mallory served as National Convention Chairman and Mitchell was the National Awards Co-Chairman. National President Caitlin Collins conducted an excellent convention which ran efficiently.
Congratulations to Mitchell Clouse for being elected National Historian! This is the first time since 2007 that a Kentucky member has won a national office election. Best of wishes to new State President Jordan Hall during the coming year as she leads the Kentucky Society. The new Senior President for K.S.C.A.R. is Mrs. Sharlene Cooper. Senior leader Mrs. Dena Green was elected to the position of Senior National Vice-President for the Mid-Southern Region. All four were installed on a beautiful sunny day at Mount Vernon on April 13, 2014.
Kudos to the Kentucky Societies who received awards and recognition during the convention:
Fifty-three members, seniors, and guests attended the 80th annual State Conference for the Kentucky State Society in our state capital, Frankfort. Members enjoyed a variety of educational activities with the Kentucky History Center's Camp ArtyFact, Kentucky SAR, and the Kentucky Military Museum. State Board members gave some excellent reports and a new set of officers were elected. Congratulations to President Jonas Bastien and Senior President Mrs. Rita Johnson on an excellent conference!
