Pioneer (2017) was started three years ago as an offshoot of the Amerige chapter. Initially comprised of a mixture of older members trusted for their work ethic and newer members still waiting to prove themselves, Pioneer has come along steadily as a small but hard working ‘family’ of sorts. Even though we’ve been one of the smallest chapters since our very conception, it hasn’t inhibited us in the slightest. Every member knows each other and gets along well. Our officers have dutifully attended as many events as we could, even if it has taken two hour slogs through L.A. traffic. I don’t believe that Pioneer is the best chapter, but I do believe our few members have the heart to be earnest with our work, and that’s all a young leader can ever ask for.
Hello, I’m Eric Kim, the current chapter president of Pioneer. I am a senior at Sunny Hills High School. Previously, I was the secretary of Pioneer, when the chapter was much smaller. Since then, we’ve grown to more than three times our original size. Now that we have acquired a larger group, the obvious next step is to find more methods to be involved in the community while keeping all of our members satisfied and comfortable with our work. With that goal in mind, I hope more and more people genuinely consider joining Pioneer and making their own contributions to our humble efforts.
